GenFriends Genealogy Chat Show-Using ad Creating Oral Histories for Your Family Tree


The panel Melissa Barker, Dan Earl, Laura Hedgecock, Shelley Murphy, and I discuss oral histories' importance in your genealogy research. From what it is to where to find it, we share many examples and links to help you discover more about the social and historical history surrounding your ancestors. Watch as Dan explains how he put together an oral history project for a group of high school students and how it affected those asking the questions and the person being interviewed.

Have you used an oral history project to help you learn about your ancestors? Have you created an oral history to pass on to the next generation? We'd love to hear from you!

Remember to look at local, state, and national repositories!
