Main Page Life History Project Dedicated To

The Life History Project is my quest to help my family and friends record their personal life history for their posterity.

The Project began in January 2004. Each week I will send out a question for you to answer. At the end of the year I will send back to you a compilation of all your answers. This will be the beginning of your personal life history.

This website was created to help me organize their responses, and for others to enjoy getting to know some new friends, and relatives. Thanks so much for participating.

For those who wish to participate contact: Renee Zamora
