I know there are lists etc. on the internet but I wanted to get others' ideas. I am in the midst of sending my mom a "question of the day" each day by email....my goal is to get some info and history of her childhood/growing up before it's too late.
She grew up on a farm in the 1930s with 13 brothers and sisters (she is now in her 80s) and had a really interesting life. (Her brothers went to WWII and she grew up without electricity just as an example). I know a lot of the facts but don't have all the stories written down.
So far, I've asked her what her first car was, what they grew on the farm, what her chores were, where she went to school (a one room school house on the praires), her favourite subject etc....
She is really good at elaborating on a question and I have gotten some really great stories so far.
I am interested to hear some other questions I could ask her that might give me more information.....Any ideas??
