Welcome to The Passdown.com. The Passdown series is designed to encourage you to seek, discover and share your legacy with your children. Too often we are not familiar with our lineage. We don’t know who we are, where we came from or why we behave as we do. These journals allow you to tell your story in your own words. Subsequently, your written words will become a window into your heart, capturing your most memorable times and allowing for a richer and fuller understanding of your life.
As you travel the pages of The Passdown, you will find it to be an emotional journey that will take you back to your youth as you relive the times of your life. You will discuss the people, places, events and situations that helped shape your thinking and mold you into the person you are. Let The Passdown serve as a written conversation with your children. It is an open door into family discussions that will preserve the memories of your story while serving as a foundation for family research. Undoubtedly, it will become a treasured family memoir. It is the story of your life.
It is my utmost hope that you will share the golden nuggets that are gathered herein with your future generations. Consider the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “In different hours, a man represents each of several of his ancestors, as if there were seven or eight of us rolled up in each man’s skin,—seven or eight ancestors at least, and they constitute the variety of notes for that new piece of music which his life is.” The Passdown serves as a wonderful tool to become the melody to your family’s newfound song of celebration. Enjoy the journey!
