Susan Adcox, a blogging friend and fellow grandmother, writes weekly posts as the Guide to Grandparents on About. com on a wide range of topics affecting todays grandparents.

Recently, Susan wrote a wonderful book, Stories from my Grandparent – an Heirloom Journal, for recording memories for your grandchildren.

This book has a hard cover and inside there are easy to handle spiral pages with thought-provoking questions covering topics from early childhood to what’s on a grandparent’s bucket list.

Many of the pages also include an opportunity to attach a photo to go along with and enhance the memory.


This book of memories can be handed down to grandchildren providing a wonderful view of  life as their grandparents experienced it. If you’ve ever thought about making some notes about your life, this gives you an organized opportunity to do just that.

If you are interested in purchasing one for yourself or as a gift, you can find it at Family Tree or Amazon. It would be a good investment for your grandchildren. Don’t you wish you had one from your grandparents?  🙂

    This is a beautiful book. I have one too! Each generation is so different from the previous one, and history books don’t begin to describe daily life for our grandmothers. This is a perfect way to be remembered in a far more personal way than just a stack of photos! Like you, I wish I had one of these from my mother and both grandmothers!
