What To Do
Interview a family member using the free StoryCorps app

 

How To Do It

Go to https://storycorps.me/ to download the free app. Choose a relative or close friend you want to interview. Pick from the list of questions provided in the app or think of your own questions and stories you want to record. Find a quiet place to conduct your interview. Listen carefully as you record your story and be curious. Once your interview is done you have the option of uploading it into the Library of Congress, sharing it with others, or just saving it for your own family.

 

How Is This Family History?
