Baby Boomer Memories

If you are a part of the "Baby Boomer" generation (typically defined as those born between 1946 and the start of the Vietnam War or about 1963) then you may want to take a look at "I Remember JFK: A Baby Boomer's Pleasant Reminiscing Spot". Despite the title, the site is NOT about JFK's death. Instead, according to Ron Enderland, the site's creator: "it is intended to be a pleasant diversion for those who grew up in the 60's and the 70's." If you are old enough to have a coherent memory of that fateful day in November 1963, then you may enjoy some of the other interesting memories posted on the site including, the British Invasion, "Leave it to Beaver," and Woodstock, among many others.

Readers can add their own comments on postings, as well as sharing their own memories.

If you are too young to be a "boomer" - the site is still worth a read, especially if you are interested in social history--an important aspect when we are researching family history.
