Page 8 December 25, 2014 Valley News & Views Christmas is a time of gift-giving, family get-to- gethers and enjoying what has been passed down from earlier generations in food, music, activities at school and church, and stories that are told and retold around the family table. In the time between Christmas and New Years, resolutions are a tradition and express what inten- tions are planned for change in the New Year. In essence, the holiday season is when "legacies" from the past transition to shaping a legacy for the next generation. With new technologies, "Digital Legacies" are becoming a new field of services to families and communities. Legacies generally refer to material values that get handed down between generations, but also to non-tangible values that include family stories and memories from cultural up-bring. The term "legacy" is much in use in the media these days. Public radio is running a series on sto- ries of how legacies can either bring the best out of people or split a family apart.

"Bingo!" seven children and how it divided the family 4-3 on whom was entitled to what amount. Positive stories of shaping a'legaey are also told about how families can be enriched by preserving intergener- ational stories and cultural traditions. People in interactive forums on the Web discuss legacies to envision how a community wants to be remembered by future generations. Leading museum sites develop digital displays, viewable on the Web, that preserve the stories of the community in lasting ways, which is doable by new ways of distributing the stories of history and heritage to distant viewers. A folk museum in a rural community is the car- rier of artifacts that relate to a town's heritage and largely determines how a hometown community is remembered by the future generations over time. It is not only how the static displays are viewable by the public onsite; it is if the back-stories of the artifacts and the people connected to them are as visual stories that become a digital legacy. With modern tech tools as close as a smart phone, youth can be engaged to capture the sto- ries of hometown pioneers in their communities as well as in their own families. For me, the community experience of volunteer- ing to help restore the Northwood Pioneer Muse- um after the tornado was invaluable to participate with youth and seniors working together to renew the museum with more relevance and reach than traditional hours on Sunday from 1-4 p.m. Youth not only helped to preserve the artifacts but were instrumental in documenting the process of moving the museum story into a vanguard po- sition of leadership among small town museums. The city auditor at the time of its re-opening five years later called it "the treasure of Northwood." Showcases were developed that lent themselves to stories of artifacts. Historic photos were digi- tized - 2500 of them for posterity. Open houses allowed visitors to see the two levels of displays in the 100-year-old city firehouse. However, those who couldn't climb the stairs to second floor or those who were house-bound or in assisted living did not have access, unless available on a com- puter screen or cell phone.

"Legacy" is the leadership theme for the Nation- al Day of History contest for 2015, which invites students to create short documentary-type videos on the theme of "Leadership and Legacies." A statewide and national contest for student-pro- duced short videos on the 2015 theme of"Leader- ship and Legacy" provides an incentive for youth to join in existing networks that promote commu- nity story-building. The method of training young filmmakers is done in a distance-learning model where "face time" on a digital screen replaces face-to-face tra- ditional instruction. This model is used daily in universities and in large corporations. The ideal application of training with busy youth is a weekend online interactive time when local youth connect from their home computer or hand-held devices with peers and experts in the field who guide the process of "story mapping" their communities. With pledged resources from organizations and corporate support, and a grant from ND Human- ities Council to oroduce "Stories of Hometown Veterans," this long-standing vision becomes a timely realistic action that connects with the Na- tional Day of History project. As the year ends, this is the last column that I'll write exclusively for the Valley News with com- mentary of lessons learned from seven years of ex- perience as a volunteer curator of the Northwood Pioneer Museum and serving most of this time on the Board of the Ox Cart Trails Historical Society and Museum.

Famed author of "Childhood and Society" and renowned family therapist, who once lived in the small town where I once lived, was a fascinating leader and I attended his workshops when possible.
