Research Your Roots: Capturing Your Family History

Date(s) - November 17, 2020
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Historical Society of Princeton offers guidance and tips to help you use today’s readily available technology to preserve and share your family’s history.

Preserve your family’s current and past history by capturing their voices and images now. Use today’s readily available technology to create audio and video files to record and share anecdotes, family jokes and legends, and first-person accounts of how your family has interacted with the past century and how they see current events.

Presented in partnership with the Princeton Public Library and the Historical Society of Princeton, this program will prepare you to collect these oral histories, offering tips for conducting interviews and eliciting detailed responses plus practical technical guidance for sharing and saving your files.

This event is free and open to the public.
