SYDNEY (PRWEB) December 09, 2015
In the digital age, more and more family events exist online. Author R. L. Black answers the question of how one preserves family history in the modern world with his new book, “Digital Dreaming: Your Step-by-Step Guide for Keeping Family Mementos in the Information Age.” (published by Balboa Press AU).
After the 2013 death of his father, Black had to deal with the thousands of keepsakes that came into his possession and responsibility. Determined to escape his anxiety and guilt over losing family knowledge, he set about classifying the mementos by creating a digital replica of his family events.
Black explains to readers how to declutter; organize documents, possessions and photos; keep treasured family knowledge meaningful; and share fragmented and dispersed keepsakes with family and friends.
“Some technology experts believe that we risk becoming a forgotten generation as we blindly rely on storing family events into digital technology,” Black says. “It was through my own personal experience of inheriting my parents’ family archive that I decided to stop destroying family information by accepting technology, rather than reject it out of fear.”
