Your stories matter. You do know that, right? But finding the time, motivation, and inspiration to write them down isn’t so easy. Where do you start? What events should you include? What details should you leave out?

The #52stories project provides the inspiration you need to write down one story every week for a year, bringing you 52 steps closer to completing your personal history.

The idea is to write one brief story about your life every week this year. You can do this in a handwritten journal, in a document on your computer, or via a series of voice or video recordings. You can even select certain stories to share on your FamilySearch Family Tree profile, where they’ll be preserved for your posterity.

At the end of the year, you’ll have 52 notches in your personal history dash. That’s 52 opportunities to capture the story of your life—52 chances to shape your family’s intergenerational narrative.
