How to Tape Instant Oral Biographies.
This is a guide for recording one's family history. With the use of tape recorders, recording or home videotape systems and simple interviewing techniques, anyone--child or adult--can easily prepare oral biographies to track their families' chronicles. The guide presents instructions for interviewing relatives and friends. Included is a comprehensive list of suggested questions to ask in recording family biographies. Questions include both straightforward ones to obtain short, factual responses in some chronological order and more open-ended ones to encourage people to open up and give broader responses. Family history sheets which can be filled in during an interview or later on are also provided. The sheets have been duplicated to allow use by at least two people in a family. (Author/RM)
