1 Personal History Interview Questions and Ideas: 1. Write a list of topics you would feel comfortable talking about and divide them among living descendants, by families. Have each person in that family group ask four questions about the topic their group has been assigned. For example, the topics listed below might be the life experiences the families could choose from: early years childhood memories school years how I met my spouse marriage favorite vacations life work, occupation beliefs 2. Bring someone, if you would like, to ask you questions and visit about the items you have chosen. Suggestion: If two people are asking questions have them rotate every other question. The missionary will be there to operate the equipment and will not be asking the questions. 3.Include a talent in your life story. 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
