Incorporating Oral History Into Your Research with Ari Wilkins

Incorporating Oral History Into Your Research with Ari Wilkins Virtual

Oral history can dramatically enhance your genealogical research. Not only can it provide you with names, dates of life events, and places, these narratives can reveal motives for migration, explanations of brief marriages, or descriptions of an ancestor’s personality. Oral histories can offer information that traditional records may not provide.
