Genealogy Club: Tips for Interviewing Relatives
Presented by Stephanie Call (AmericanAncestors & NEHGS)

The oral tradition of a family is perhaps just as important as the evidence you find in document-based research. Even if you learn that not all of the details are 100% accurate, these stories provide important clues to begin—or continue—your research, give life to names and dates on a page, and may provide information not found in records. But how do you start the conversation, stay on track, and record the information provided? This webinar will offer some valuable tips and techniques for interviewing relatives—and suggest strategies for encouraging family to talk!

Co-hosted by the Historical Society of Plainfield / Drake House Museum and Plainfield Public Library

Nov 6, 2021 10:30 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
