Oral History Recording

What is an Oral History?
It is an interview with a person about their own life experiences. It can be used to preserve family history and culture, or to access folklore and tradition. Oral Histories are often used by historians to uncover the experiences of underrepresented groups of people. They are a way of getting an inside perspective of what it was like to live in a particular time or to be part of a particular group.

Why record an Oral History?
Simply put, to preserve the memory and experiences of people and families through first hand spoken word.

Everyone has a Story to Tell!
Whether it be stories of love, war, childhood memories, or just favorite events from everyday life, you have something special to share!
