Elkhorn, WI (PRWEB) July 31, 2006
The People History is a site dedicated to preserving memories for future generations. Many of the things accepted as a way of life did not exist 20 years ago. Not to mention many of the events that occurred before the coming of the Internet are well documented historically but do not have the memories from the people who lived through those events and changes.
Memories are a most precious asset. The memories amassed over a lifetime shortly after birth define who people are and how they live.
The brain stores the personal memories from which one can create images, sounds and smells in the mind. An example may be a trip to the beach when one was quite young. They can find the memory by delving into the depths of the mind, even though the memory was quite sometime ago.
During other times, another person talking about an event that affected them may well rekindle memories of that event or similar events. While doing research, The People History sat down with an older man discussing changes to the car during the last 50 years. They mentioned flashing other cars with a small button on the floor of the car. At that point he said he did not remember one of those, however, as the discussion continued about 5 minutes later he said he did remember those button / switches. The People History is sure he had not thought about those in some 20 years but just by mentioning them, it started a part of his brain that was searching for a memory of them.
One of the reasons the site was created was as a way of reminding others of some of the things and events they may well have forgotten and to attempt to document them on the Internet for others to read and remember. As each generation passes, those memories may well be lost.
During another conversation with an older man, he told The Peoples History of his immigration into the United States through Ellis Island. He spoke little English at that time and had mixed emotions about the experience part of it was thrilling and new but another part was scary and very confusing. Historians have done a great job of documenting the history of Ellis Island but those thousands of immigrants who came through could provide an insight into the thoughts and sensations about what they experienced.
As The People History gains in maturity people become nostalgic for earlier times and the company hopes that, some of the stories and memories on The People History's site allow everyone to indulge in their nostalgia and memories.
This site was created to preserve the thoughts, memories and social history of the ordinary man and woman in a similar way that an autobiography or biography does for the rich and famous. The company does include a number of facts and information to help jog peoples memories, The People History do not consider ourselves nor do we wish to be an authority on history as there are a number of great resources available run by dedicated and knowledgeable editors.
There is no need to register or include a name to leave memories or a little part of personal history.
