This program is available online only.

Oral history can dramatically enhance your genealogy research, by offering you information that traditional records may not provide. Not only can it provide you with names, dates, and places, but these narratives can reveal motives for migration, explanations of brief marriages, or descriptions of an ancestor’s personality. Learn how to locate oral histories and how to use them to tell a more in-depth story of your family's history.
