Beyond #genealogy, your life history is something that people will want to know 100 years from now. I am related to Richard Warren of the Mayflower (but it is estimated that 14 million other Americans are too). I am also related to my great-grandfather from the Downer line

--descendents of Richard Warren.  The sad thing is I really don't know him and I never will. His life stories were never recorded in any way for me to see and to read.  I know the birth, marriage, and death dates and where they lived---but little to nothing else.  Beyond your #ancestry, write your life history and ensure that your great grandchildren will actually know you and have more than the basic facts to enjoy.
