Intro

 
In a time where we currently save every memory and picture online, what’s often missing is the voice of our grandparents and great-grandparents.

Stories that helped younger generations understand where they come from and gave them tools for the future have been lost to live-streaming and comment sections. Yet, those lessons can provide valuable insight into ourselves and how to overcome some of our biggest struggles.

Jill Phillips grew up in a London that no longer exists, London in the early 1960’s. The stories of her parents and relatives who struggled to overcome the trauma of WWII touched her deeply. Motivated by the stories, Jill recaptured that unique time to pass on to the younger generation through her lively and hilarious book, Lamlash Street.

In this episode, Jill talks to us about how today’s families can connect younger generations and kids to their family’s history, preserve family stories in writing and the surprising and enlightening lessons that come with understanding her own past family strife.
