Since everyone seemed to have a great time digging for memories, I'm going to do it again!

I will list a series of questions. Copy the questions; email to your partners. This swap is open to everyone! Please don't flake!

Simple, isn't it? But this one will make you THINK!

  1. What is your full name? Why did your parents select this name for you? Did you have a nickname?

  2. When and where were you born?

  3. How did your family come to live there?

  4. Were there other family members in the area? Who?

  5. What was the house (apartment, farm, etc.) like? How many rooms? Bathrooms? Did it have electricity? Indoor plumbing? Telephones?

  6. Were there any special items in the house that you remember?

  7. Describe the personalities of your family members.

  8. What kind of games did you play growing up?

  9. What was your favorite toy and why?

  10. What was your favorite thing to do for fun (movies, beach, etc.)?

  11. Did you have family chores? What were they? Which was your least favorite?

  12. What school activities and sports did you participate in? Do you remember any fads from your youth? Popular hairstyles? Clothes?

  13. Who were your childhood heroes?

  14. What were your favorite songs and music?

  17. Were you ever mentioned in a newspaper?

  18. Who were your friends when you were growing up?

  19. What world events had the most impact on you while you were growing up? Did any of them personally affect your family?

  20. Describe a typical family dinner. Did you all eat together as a family? Who did the cooking? What were your favorite foods?

  21. How were holidays (birthdays, Christmas, etc.) celebrated in your family? Did your family have special traditions?

  22. Are there any stories about famous or infamous relatives in your family?

  23. How is the world today different from what it was like when you were a child?

  24. Who was the oldest relative you remember as a child? What do you remember about them?

  25. What do you know about your family surname?

  26. Is there a naming tradition in your family, such as always giving the firstborn son the name of his paternal grandfather?

  27. What stories have come down to you about your parents? Grandparents? More distant ancestors?
