National Day of Listening since it was launched in 2008 by StoryCorps, a nonprofit oral history project. Americans are encouraged to take the time to record the stories of family members, friends, and members of the community. I'm posting a little later than I intended, but there is still time to participate!
StoryCorps has recommendations for equipment and resources if you want to conduct interviews today or even during the remainder of the holiday weekend. Take some time to listen to a relative and record that person's memories. Keep your family history alive by saving the stories and sharing them with other family members.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
