Oral Histories

They’re talking about oral histories on MPR today, suggesting that people take a recorder and capture family history during the Thanksgiving holiday.  We encourage you to do the same.  Make it casual, make sure the tape or digital recorder works, and start talking.  Try to talk to one person at a time in a quiet place, which will make understanding the recording much easier.  Consider donating a copy of your recording (or a transcription) to your local historical society.
