What a gift this course is! Having lived long enough to have most all members of my family pass away. It has been difficult to share with my children and grandchildren anything other than old photographs about the generations who came before them. After having this course recommended to me, I am grateful that there is now a way for me to leave a legacy of this type for my own grandchildren and family, so that this may become part of a larger family tradition that future generations may cherish and enjoy. It is important...


I have a lot of stories to tell but I was afraid to tell them. It’s difficult when you don’t know what people will think of you. But Nancy's course showed me a really easy way to find the story that was the most important to me and jump right into writing it. I’ve never told this story to anyone before and she made me feel comfortable. I had a fun time working with her and I’m excited to do more.

I have a new grandson and I want to tell him stories but he lives a couple hours away. So I took the E-course Learning to Record Stories for Your Grandchildren by Nancy. I truly enjoyed all the lessons. When it came to downloading Audacity and lame, I must admit, I had my doubts. I am not a computer whiz by any means. I was curious about how others might instruct a person to use the software and YOURS was much nicer to listen to and much easier to follow. YOU really need to put yours on utube.  I found that Nancy's pace and step by step instruction was great! And I did it! Thanks Nancy for that! Now I am on my way to recording stories.
