It's the perfect tool to keep a diary and/or journal in!

Writing your lifestory or autobiography is easier now because of it. Let Memorygrabber spark memories and simply record them into your copy of The Journal.

Memorygrabber is the very popular life story e-workbook that has been used and praised by people throughout the world and has been used as a life story writing tool in retirement communities, grade schools and even select classes at Duke University (Instructor Cynthia Clarke; 2002).

Memorygrabber and The Journal Combined Make Keeping a Journal or Writing Your Lifestory Easier and
Much More Fun


Type Right onto the Screen

No longer do you need to print out Memorygrabbers's pages and write your responses by hand, although this is still an option. Over the years, the overriding suggestion from Memorygrabber users has been to make it possible to type answers directly onto the computer screen.

This is finally possible with combination of The Memorygrabber and The Journal Software. 

Unlimited Space:

No longer be limited by how much space you have between questions on the printed page. Memorygrabber presents you with close to 900 writing ideas, questions and prompts (combined) and now, being part of The Journal, you'll have near unlimited amounts of space to respond and tell your lifestory or family history.

Work Faster:

Since most can type faster than they write, you'll get much more said and preserved... faster!

Hide Poor Handwriting Skills:

Don't let embarrassment of less-than perfect handwriting prevent you from preserving and passing on the stories of your life to your children and grandchildren. I don't believe you should be concerned about this anyway, but I know many people do worry about it. Problem solved!

Spellchecker to the Rescue:

If your spelling is suspect, no one will be the wiser!

Add Your Pictures:

Place pictures of exact events right into your writings/stories. Pictures can tell your story much better in the mind of the future reader. Show them the house you grew up in…instead of just trying to describe it. The fun part is deciding which pictures to include. Insert a picture and tell about it.

Don't Start Writing with a Blank Page:

This is where Memorygrabber comes into play. Memorygrabber will give you an arsenal of nearly 900 questions to answer and memory lists to create. Pick and choose the questions you wish to answer... and delete the rest. You will never again be able to say "My life hasn't been that exciting so I can't think of much to write about". 

These questions and list-building activities are integrated right into into The Journal as templates. Consider these questions to be just like a personal interviewer creatively asking you about your life. You'll have more to say/write about than you would have imagined! Blank Journal pages will still be available to you, should you desire to start from one. 

Many Print Options:

At any point, print all or some of your compilation into a book format for sharing with family, right from your own printer.

Easy to Organize your Writing:

Create an unlimited number of categories, sub-categories, entries and sub-entries to keep your writings neatly organized and tightly put together. 

Professional writers use The Journal to organize their highly complicated novel plots and stories. So if believe your life is "complicated", just like a novel, you need not worry! :)

You'll organize your entries by date, year or however you wish and never have to flip through screens, like pages in a paper journal, looking for that one special entry you wrote previously. Memorygrabber/The Journal gives you no hassle lookup ability with supreme search function. 

Preserving your personal history will be much easier with this kind of organization ability. A lack of organization kills any type of project, including writing a journal or life story.
