Talking With Grandma: Interviewing the Living for Leads to the Past

Talking With Grandma: Interviewing the Living for Leads to the Past Online

People say that talking to your plants can make them grow, and the same is true for family trees. While it's not always necessary to record oral histories to get the basic vital statistics about your ancestors, you may find that interviewing your family members provides some of the most interesting information about your family. Learning about hobbies, family traditions, and personalities can really bring the names in your family tree to life! 

Making the most of your interview means keeping an ear open for good stories, and also asking follow-up questions on the details like dates and places.  Join us for some tips on how to best set up and record the interview, and some sample questions to get you started on the deeper roots of your family tree.

Presented by Diana Crisman Smith
