DID YOU KNOW? Each day, 10,000 more Baby-Boomers
turn age 62 and many of them are leaving a record of their lives for their children. Are you ready
to do the same?
It is now
2011! Don't let another year go by without writing your autobiography or learning how to
write an autobiography for a dear parent, grandparent or friend. ...It's never been easier for you than
now with Memorygrabber. Learn how to write an
autobiography with Memorygrabber as your guide. Get a quick
start writing an autobiography
"There's no excuse now for ANYONE to say their life story can't be written.
You've eliminated all the excuses." ~ Bill Parks, TX USA
Memorygrabber quickly downloads to your computer
and arms you with a 248 page "arsenal" of memory grabbing
questions, topics, activities,
games, Web resources, lists-to-create and
more! Whoever said that writing an autobiography had to be hard and boring?
will walk you through, step by step, and show you how to get started
by building a personal life timeline and conduct a family history interview with parents,
grandparents and others.
makes preserving one's life story as simple as filling in the answers or reading and answering your
responses onto audio or video tape.
Memorygrabber will prompt you to consider and preserve at least 900 things that your kids and grandkids will want to
know about your life someday, but won't think to ask until it's too late.
Come on and admit it. How many of
these things have you told yourself? What is keeping you from starting?
I Can't Write Well Enough to do my Life Story
I Can't Write Well
Enough to do my Life Story
My Life is too Boring...Nobody Would Want to Read it
I Wouldn't Know Where
to Begin, Anyway
Autobiographies and Life Stories are Really Only for Celebrities
I Do Not Have Enough
Time to Write My Life Story
In the end...
...the result is the same. You live a great life, but in the
end, you neither write or preserve a thing. How many generations do you think it
will take before your family forgets your name?
Ask most any person to tell you what they know about their great-grandparents
and there, I believe, you'd have your answer.

Your Life Story
Once Memorygrabber is
downloaded to your computer:
Print it out, one page
at a time or all at once!
Place each page in your own sturdy three-ring binder (not included) and then write your
answer right onto the printed page.
By using a three-ring notebook, you'll have the added benefit of expansion. Expansion to insert:
Additional pages to write out the stories you want to elaborate on.
Document protectors to protect....of course, documents such as a copy of birth and wedding certificates.
Zipper pouches that are designed for notebooks. Use them to include small items that have sentimental value to you. Locks of hair, old report cards, etc.
These things are not possible with a hardbound book.

Work Together With A Friend or Family Member
There is hardly a better way to spend quality time with family or a close friend, than talking and sharing good times and memories from yesteryear.
If you decide to record your answers, rather than writing them, sitting down with another individual, that you trust, will make it much easier.
It's hard sitting alone and recording your voice.
But with a trusted individual there, it's much easier to have a true, more natural flowing recording of your answers. Help your friend with his or her life story, while you are at it. You just might learn more about each other.
Questions! ...So many memory-sparking questions and nobody more qualified to answer them than you!
With as much such a 600 questions, you'll never have to stare at a blank page and wonder what to write about. Let Memorygrabber's huge arsenal of inquisitive questions walk you back through your life, year by year.
Lists!This is, by far, my favorite section of the e-book.List your first... List your favorite... List your topten... Describing your life through list-making requires very little writing skill, yet they can say so much about your life.
If you are one who thinks that you haven't much to tell about, this part of Memorygrabber will, literally, change your thinking on that.
From listing all your favorite things to topics like "List the Risks that you Regret not Taking", you'll be surprised at all the memories that come back to you.
There are many other life lists for you to build, but I can't divulge them all right here! Just make sure you have a sharp pencil ready!
Activities! ...Have fun and get the rest of the family involved with 14 Memorygrabber "Rapid-Recall" activities. Each one is designed to assist in recollecting times past, through involvement of other family members.
From setting up and playing a "Family Trivia Game" to crafting hang-on-the-wall "Life Timelines", you'll re-discover personal and family history moments that you'll be anxious to share with your children.
...Some pretty amazing Web resources that'll send you on a trip down memory lane.
Here's what one happy Memorygrabber user had to say...
"I would strongly recommend the ebook. It really is the most useful tool I've come across. There are some really neat links, too, for remembering stuff in certain decades- fads, styles, etc. Made my head spin!" Shani, MemoryGrabber user, Florida USA

Declare Proudly, "This is Who I Am"
One fills out a job application to let their potential employer know all he/she needs to know about them.
Memorygrabber is much like a "job application", if job applications were 248 pages long. The only difference is that this is for your family.
Now if this sounds like some work, you'd be correct. But, at the same time, no one has ever complained about writers block, while filling out a job application.
Memorygrabber is unique in its "Whole Person" concept of life story preservation!
You, the unique person that you are, consist of more than just your past. In fact, if you think about it, your past is only one third of who you are.
The other two parts consist of who you are today, as well as who you hope to be in the future...in other words, your hopes and dreams for the future.
Who you are today and who you hope to be in the future are all part of the "Whole Person" concept that Memorygrabber tackles with a vengeance!
"This is who I am..."
"This is what I've done with my life so far..."
"This is what I'm doing now..."
"This is what I believe and think about things in life..."
"These are world events that shaped my life and generation..."
"This is what I plan and hope to do with the rest of my life..."
"These are people (family and friends) that have and still do have impact in my life...and so on!"
Introducing a New Standard in Life Story Workbooks!
Memorygrabber isn't your standard "Write your autobiography" book, where you get a pretty picture book with one or two questions per page, followed by a blank page for your answer.
What good would that do you?
...Instead Memorygrabber is tightly packed and full of enough memory-grabbing ideas, that you'll never run out of memories to preserve. Nearly all pages, within Memorygrabber, are full of questions or other things to do and complete.
All downloadable books are commonly referred to as e-books.
E-Books are very popular on the Internet and their popularity looks to continue sky-rocketing into the future. Even Amazon.com has set up their own e-book division...so that should tell you something right there.
