Kindred Konnections: Writing Your Personal History - 20 views

  • Basically, the "materials" for this project are going to be things that help you to remember specials events in your life. Photographs, journals, and letters are a few good ideas. As you leaf through a photo album or an old journal, chances are that you'll find yourself thinking, "Now that's a story I've got to put in!"
  • To help you get over that first horrible case of writer's block, here are some places you might start: What is the story of your birth? Remember how your mother used to tell you about the seventy-two hours she spent in labor to bring you into the world? Or maybe your father once told you what he thought the first time he saw you. These can turn into attention-grabbing beginnings. What is your earliest memory? Rather than starting with your birth, you might want to start with the first face, house, toy, or song that you remember. Why did you decide to write your personal history? Maybe you decided to start this project after reading your grandmother's journal or after spending an exhausting decade trying to find out exactly who your great-great grandfather was. That story could make an interesting introduction. What was the most important, happiest, or best day of your life? Think over your life and pick one particular day that stands out to you.
  • You might also consider having family members or friends contribute some memories of their own. For example, when writing about your childhood, you might want to ask your siblings to write down what they remember about growing up in your home. Maybe they remember things you've forgotten-like that unfortunate incident with the grape juice and Mom's favorite shirt-or simply remember things differently. While this is first and foremost your history, it can be interesting to share a story from someone else's viewpoint. When talking about your wedding day, it would be fun to have your spouse's version of the story as well as your own.

  • Now it's time to go back and smooth everything out. Read over what you've written and make sure that it all makes sense. Does one story flow neatly into another? Did you leave out anything important? Are there any spelling or grammar mistakes to correct?

  • A new look at a 425-year-old map has yielded a tantalizing clue about the fate of the Lost Colony, the settlers who disappeared from North Carolina's Roanoke Island in the late 16th century.
  • First Colony Foundation
  • British Museum in London
  • the "Virginea Pars" map of Virginia and North Carolina
  • they moved westward up the Albemarle Sound to the confluence of the Chowan and Roanoke rivers,
  • James Horn, vice president of research and historical interpretation at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and author of a 2010 book about the Lost Colony.
  • their clear intention, marked on the map
  • in what is modern-day Bertie County in northeastern North Carolina – hides what appears to be a fort. Another symbol, appearing to be the very faint image of a different kind of fort, is drawn on top of the patch.
  • the fort symbol could indicate where the settlers went.
  • "First Colony Foundation researchers believe that it could mark, literally and symbolically, `the way to Jamestown.'
  • When he came back, the colony was gone.
  • White made the map and other drawings when he traveled to Roanoke Island in 1585 on an expedition commanded by Sir Ralph Lane. In 1587, a second colony of 116 English settlers landed on Roanoke Island, led by White.
  • what happened to the 95 or so settlers,
  • Brent Lane, a member of the board of the First Colony Foundation, asked a seemingly obvious question: What's under those two patches?
  • But the other covered the possible fort symbol, which is visible only when the map is viewed in a light box.
  • "If this was such an accurate map and it was so critical to their mission, why in the world did it have patches on it? This important document was being shown to investors and royalty to document the success of this mission. And it had patches on it like a hand-me-down."
  • The land where archaeologists would need to dig eventually is privately owned, and some of it could be under a golf course and residential community. So excavating won't begin anytime soon.
  • "The search for the colonists didn't start this decade; it didn't start this century. It started as soon as they were found to be absent from Roanoke Island ... I would say every generation in the last 400 years has taken this search on."
    "A new look at a 425-year-old map has yielded a tantalizing clue about the fate of the Lost Colony"
    Good news for researchers: Collaboration and pooling of resources reveals a unique discovery of the first importance.
