Family Oral History Using Digital Tools.

How to interview:

Preparation - Think about topics you wantto talk about. Open ended questions. Visit for an online question generator. Fabulous.

To Our childrens Children, a book for people who are writing their autobiography.

A structured conversation to bring out stories from the other person.

Listen - Listen with your face. Allow silence. Count to 10 inside. Give the person time.

  1. Thanks, Steve!

    This stuff will be useful for my podcast. I've also been thinking interviewing some family members for posterity, and the question list here is a great start!
