Here are five top questions that you should consider asking your loved ones when you interview them for their life story or their memories.
They are the type of questions that will produce an emotive response, so they’ll give you those what I call “goosebump moments”.
Remember to thank them for sharing their story
When the interview is finished, don’t forget to thank your loved one for sharing their story with you.
It’s not always easy for people to share their stories. Sometimes it can be a healing experience, sometimes it can be a difficult experience – but they have allowed you to hear it. It’s a privilege to hear someone’s story and be able to share it with future generations, so always remember to thank them for opening up their hearts to you.
