Family stories are not just about the past - sometimes they are about what’s happening right now: a baptism, a wedding, an anniversary, a bar or bat mitzvah, a retirement, a birthday, an engagement, or a birth.

We no longer live in small, self-contained communities - or counties - or countries. Many of us can boast of quite an eclectic mixture of races, creeds and colours, whether in the nuclear or the extended family.

Consider the richness and depth of the memories you create each year, and preserve them for the future.
