New Service Collects Family Histories


Storyworth is a new service aimed at helping families preserve their history.

For an annual fee of $49, family members can select questions for their elders to answer each week.  The replies are emailed to the rest of the family and stored on a website for private reading.  One user said this new way of communicating with her mother “helped me to know her better and understand the context of her life.”
