This has been a topic that has interested me for almost about a year since I watched a documentary called, "The Boy That Lived Before." As someone who believes in some higher power and grew up in the good ol' Bible Belt, I shrugged off the thought of the possibility of reincarnation. But, after listening to Cameron, the little boy in the documentary, and hearing of hundreds of other stories of children around the ages of 3-6 who won't stop talking about different lives, I cannot ignore the evidence.
Here is a run-through of Cameron's story from Ian Lawton's website:

After I listened to the story, I was thinking, "Well, that's enough internet for today," and didn't think much of the topic until recently, when I saw a thread off of a popular Facebook page which linked to an article called "12 of the Creepiest Things Kids have Done" or something like that. There were at least 20 people on there talking of either themselves of their children who talked about "other mommies and daddies" and things of the like. It's doubtful that many people in that single thread would all make up stories about this for attention.
This lead me to re-watch the old documentary along with a few episodes of a different series called "Ghost Inside My Child," (which was a bit dramatized to a point it was cheesy, but seemed to have believable stories).

___________________________________________________________________________________

It's not like any of this really matters and will affect how we live, but it really gets you thinking and makes you feel small. There is so much science hasn't explained yet, and it's exciting. Can children genetically inherit memories from their parents? Do they forget these "memories" when they are elementary age because of new ones overshadowing the old ones? Is this just a bunch of children who happen to make up the same kind of bizarre stories? (Whew, I'm starting to sound like one of those guys on Ancient Aliens ).

Here's what I'd like to know. Do you have any personal stories of "past life memories?" Do you believe in the possibility of reincarnation? Why or why not?

If anyone is interested in information I found about this topic, I recommend reading about Dr. Jim Tucker's research (this is the same guy who accompanied the family in the documentary), highlighted in this University of Virginia article: http://uvamagazine.org/articles/the_science_of_reincarnation

A lot of these can just come from very vivid dreams. I have had a few quite realistic dreams myself. I once woke up and spent the first minute trying to remember where I was. Wrong house without my wife. Then I remembered I just have some really vivid dreams.

I do enjoy writing down the dreams though. They have really good story plots. They tend to be dystopian dreams though. I must be a depressing person.

I believe in reincarnation. Energy can't be created or destroyed, so it has to go somewhere.

I recall there being another story of a child that was a reincarnation of a WWII soldier and how he was able to recall the names of his former shipmates. The men had survived the war and the boy was able to meet up with them at a WWII reunion. They talked about their experiences and the former shipmates were strongly convinced that this boy was the man that they had once served with.

I've seen it not in my but in my little cousin. She was born a little over a year after our Grandma died. Grandma used to have a thing for ice cream, to a point where she had this specific little swirl she made with her spoon to make sure not to miss a drop. Well the first time my cousin had ice cream she made that exact motion. She looks like our Grandma, has the same mannerisms, the same quiet demeanor and the same gentleness. She never had a chance to meet our Grandma but we've noticed she does a lot of things Grandma did EXACTLY the way Grandma did. In some ways it's spooky, in others it's kind of comforting.

I think its a case of people seeing what they want to see. Coincidence can easily become miracle if you wish it to be so.

No. Memories aren't stored in genes. There's no such thing as reincarnation.
