The Memory Book starts with ideas about how to make a Memory Book for yourself or your family. It includes suggestions for page headings, covering information about both parents, the family history and traditions and many other things that you will want your children to know. You will also find pages with maps of the country and wider world so you can show where different family members live. Another page provides a layout to help you make a family tree.

You can print out the whole of the Memory Book at one go. But if the internet connect is limited or too expensive, you can print out each section as you need it. The different sections are explained below:Runyankore Memory Book cover
