Hear What They Heard

Hearing ancestors’ voices helps us bond with them in a special way. When you hear a story from their point of view, you can better connect with them.

Possible Activities
  • Ask a parent or grandparent to tell stories about his or her life, or a family member. You could ask questions like these:
    • What is a memorable moment from your childhood?
    • What do you remember about where you grew up?
    • How did you meet your spouse?
    • What are some moments that impacted your life the most?
    • What is one funny story from your life?
Go Digital
  • Listen to old recordings of your family members’ stories and see what you can learn from them.
  • Listen to music or watch movies from when your ancestors were alive.
  • Use the FamilySearch Memories App to record a story from a family member’s life so it won’t be lost.
