|1940 Nash Advertisement|
The concept is cool, stories that are submitted about an individual will be gathered together on http://familySearch.org/ Think of it, if all of my grandfathers stories are pulled together as 1 combined story, how great will that be for his ancestors.
The site isn't up yet but once it is, the stories that are submitted will be showcased on our map and on their own individual pages. If you submit a story you will be sent a link to it once it goes live. With that you can share it with your family and friends.
Currently we are looking for stories in the following Categories:
Who is in it: Tell us about the person you know that lived when the 1940 census was created. Submit a photo, scrapbook page, a story or create a Facebook page in their honor.
Provide persons first and last name, location, birth date, photos current or old, and the story long or short, we need all types.
How it was: Submit facts, images, and stories about what it was like to live in a particular area during the late 1930's and early 1940's.
Again, old photos and possibly scrapbook pages and images.
Where were they when..... Tell us but where you, or someone you know was, during a major event from the late 1930's or early 1940's. Where were you during Pearl Harbor? D-Day? Gandhi's Assassination?
Even journal entries and stories would be good.
