Saturday Night Genealogy Fun -- How Are You Telling Your Own Life Story?

  Calling all Genea-Musings Fans: 

 It's Saturday Night again - 

Time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Come on, everybody, join in and accept the mission and execute it with precision. 

1)   How are you telling your own life story?  Who have you shared it with?  What do you hope to do in the future?

2) Tell us about your life storytelling so far in a comment on this post, or in a Facebook post.  Please leave a link on this post if you write your own post.

Here's mine:

I have done several things to date to tell my life story, including:

a)  I wrote a 21 page autobiography in 2001, updated it in 2013, and updated it again in 2022, and updated it again in 2024.  I used this autobiography to create my EmulateMe avatar that anyone can talk to - see an example in

b)  I have written 37 stories for a StoryWorth book, and shared them with my daughtrers, but I haven't published the book to date.  I need to get a round tuit.

c)  I have written many stories about my life in the Saturday Night Genealogy Fun theme on my Genea-Musings blog - see

d)  I have over 800 family photographs on my Genea-Musings blog, many of them with my life activities as a subject, in the (Not So) Wordless Wednesday theme -- see  

e)  I have several digital home movies from the 1940s to 1970s on my YouTube channel --  My plan is to run them in a Zoom meeting with my own commentary and put them on the YouTube channel.

f)  Another plan I have is to put many of my photographs, with a short description of each, into a Powerpoint presentation, record it in a Zoom meeting with commentary, and put it on my YouTube channel.  I did this at our 50th wedding anniversary party about our married life, but without the commentary because of time constraints.  I also want to do the same type of presentation with commentary for my wife, my parents, and my four grandparents.   

g)  All of these will go on my FOREVER page which my daughters and grandchildren can access for 99 years.  They will also be in my Google Drive account, and in my home computer archive if I ever get it started - another round tuit.

I recently posted about writing my personal history, which sounds suspiciously similar to telling my life story:
