Author Linda Spence writes, "We are surprisingly curious about these everyday details.  And many of us long for something more, something deeper:  "I wanted to know," my sister tells me, "not just what happened in Mother's life, but what she felt when it was happening." 

We are these people to someone else.

Memoirs and Biographies

Think about a certain loved one in your family tree. Perhaps you knew him or her personally, or maybe from the stories you heard, you wish you could have. Wouldn’t we like to know where they came from, why they came here, what they were feeling, and the relationships they had? Once those people have passed or their memory goes, it is too late.
