Legacy For My Family

What is ‘Legacy For My Family’?

Legacy For My Family‘ is a brief document or recording that answers; ‘who they are, where they came from, how they got here, and importantly, what they stand for.’

The brevity of the ‘Legacy For My Family‘ experience is brief yet captures a basic, priceless family narrative. 

Designed to mitigate procrastination and time constraints, this eye-opening exercise of answering only 7 legacy questions makes successive generations stronger by virtue of greater continuity of their unique heritage, culture and traditions.

The benefits to the family, and their offspring specifically, is to provide an individual identity that is unique, and gives them an emotional anchor when inevitable social crises occur. 

It’s the Voice We Miss the most!

Grandmothers Rock!!!

Did you know that since the earliest days of mankind it has aways been the family matriarch who made sure the family story was transferred down through the ages?

Yet, it’s the patriarch that most family members believe has this important responsibility. Not that he isn’t important to the family narrative but Gramma was witness to daily life and can recall almost everything when asked.

For that reason we highly recommend asking the family matriarch the 7 legacy questions first. The most important thing is to start asking….right now! 

Your Family’s Future Depends On You!

Professors Marshall Duke and Robyn Fivush of Emory University asked 48 families 20 questions about their family history. They found that the more the children knew, the

  • stronger their sense of control over their lives
  • higher their self-esteem
  • more successfully they believed their families functioned.

“Hearing these stories gave the children a sense of their history and a strong ‘intergenerational self’. Even if they were only nine, their identity stretched back 100 years, giving them connection, strength and resilience.” (Dr. Duke)
