Digital storytelling as a way to share the stories of our families – both yesterday’s and today’s. It’s like a technically-advanced version of the journals, diaries and photo albums of our ancestors. And, thanks to technology, we can share our projects online to reach a world-wide audience. As many of us have already discovered, this has helped discover and meet distant relatives who also share our interest in dead relatives. Below is a view of the current Digital Storytelling Weekly which presents interesting articles, videos and other resources from around the web.

For a more comprehensive discussion of digital storytelling, take a look at my book – The Future of Memories: A digital publishing primer for the family historian [PDF – $2.99]. You’ll discover how easy it is to be your own publisher and find some great projects to get you started.
