Do you have older loved ones who have stories you want to record? Do you have a grandparent, parent or perhaps a great aunt that has lived a rich life full of wonderful personal stories? Or perhaps you want to record your life history to leave as a legacy to your children and descendants? Family history and stories matter, not only to your loved one, but also to you, and your children, and to their children. Family history is such a precious thing to let slip by. Don't regret not making the decision to record soon. In addition to being a professional photographer, I am also a Stanford-trained historian with experience in oral histories.
