Technology will be set up for you, so all you have to do is press 'record'. After the recording we will assist you in creating an account and uploading the oral history to StoryCorps. Recordings can be done alone or with a loved one. Questions are available to help guide the conversation.
Recordings will take place in the Genealogy & Local History Room.
