Interviewing Your Family Members

Looking ahead —

You will need to complete AT LEAST six one-hour interviews with family members for our genealogical documentaries.

If any of you are going home for spring break, it may be a good time to get some interviews done.

That will require that you procure your microphone and tripod so that you can record the interviews (and after each one, be sure to upload it to a dropbox or google drive folder so it doesn’t eat up all your storage). You should also be equipped with an idea for how you will be conducting your family history interviews. This short article will help you get started with ice breaker questions and life history collection tips. Be sure to ask your family members about other family members, particularly those who’ve passed away.
