I will include two case studies, drawn from my own genealogical research, that demonstrate how information, casual remarks and other clues gathered in oral history interviews can lead to exciting, life-changing discoveries. Included in the PowerPoint presentation will be snippets from oral history texts, diagrams, and photographs to illustrate my main theme - that oral history is a powerful tool for the genealogist. I will talk in some detail about the elements that constitute good oral history technique: what to do and what not do, the type of recording equipment available, etc. and distribute handouts delineating good oral history practice, interviewing tips and techniques, how to handle sound equipment, and I will provide a bibliography of pertinent resources. And, of course, I will take and answer questions.
