What does your mother remember
about her first kiss?
What's the first thing your father
tells himself every morning?

By the time we are adults, it is all too easy to look at our parents and grandparents as though their lives have been miles removed from our own, causing a communication and generation gap seemingly impossible to bridge. But the older we get, the more we understand the importance of connecting with our elders before they're gone. There is no better way to do this than to talk to them like you never have before and create a record of their lives to share with the next generation.
Showcasing over 200 questions that are sure to help you know your loved ones better than you ever dreamed, Touching Tomorrow contains everything you need to record your family's most valuable asset: their wisdom, humor, and love.
With tips on preparing both yourself and your elders for the technical and emotional process, helpful hints on coaxing shy or reluctant family members to participate, and heartwarming real life stories from people who have already preserved their elders' memories on tape, this is an invaluable guide to creating a precious family heirloom -- one that will truly touch tomorrow.

Review:

The pressures of modern living make it all too easy to become disconnected from our families, both geographically and psychologically. Embarking on a project to capture your loved ones on tape will not only bring everyone closer together in the here and now but will create a legacy of memories for future generations. Under the sage guidance of Mary LoVerde in Touching Tomorrow: How to Interview Your Loved Ones to Capture a Lifetime of Memories on Video or Audio, we learn how easy (if time-consuming) it can be to help family members open up, share memories, and reveal hopes and dreams, and how to record these interviews on video- or audiotape.

From overcoming resistance to making the speaker feel comfortable, and getting it all recorded to making this heirloom-to-be uniquely your own, LoVerde offers instructions and tips as well as moving recollections from those who have participated in the process. LoVerde's extensive lists of questions are perfectly geared to get the whole thing rolling, and even if your discussions never reach the taping stage, you'll gain valuable insights and hear touching remembrances from your own loved ones just from trying out the interview procedures. --Amy Handy
