Writing a life story is "the invention of me" - and an unreliable source for genealogists.

"A memoir," says Gore Vidal, "is how one remembers one's own life, while an autobiography is history, requiring research, dates, facts double-checked. In a memoir it isn't the end of the world if your memory tricks you and your dates are off by a week or a month as long as you honestly try to tell the truth" (Palimpsest: A Memoir, 1995).
