Often, we lack information on the past because those people did not keep records, or because the records they did create have been destroyed. However, just as often, and especially when dealing with more modern periods, we lack vital information on a subject because writers from that era took it for granted. They assumed that everyone knew about these events/things, so they didn't mention them.
Keep that fact in mind as you are writing/creating your memoir (assuming you want to leave some type of written/image based memoir behind once you pass). The little things that you take for granted are the bits and pieces of your life that your descendants (and any other interested people) might be most interested in.
