The article analyses theoretical and methodological foundations of family memory studies in the context of the practical turn and the cultural historical activity theory. The author reveals the relationship of historical culture and family memory, and substantiates the idea of cultural mediation of family memory's reproduction practices. Peculiarities of family memory's translation are analysed in the context of the practices of work, life and leisure. It justifies the idea that the heuristic nature of cultural-historical theory is associated with the special role of the personality as a selector of facts and events of family memory, features of the transformation of family memory into family history consciousness. The significance of the cultural historical activity theory is also associated with the study of the practice of harmonizing various ways of thematisation of the family's past.
