Last chance to register for this wonderful Oral History workshop which will be presented by Jeff Corrigan with the State Historical Society of MO here at the WRVHS!

Learning to conduct interviews correctly is essential whether you plan to visit family for genealogical research or be involved with an Oral History group (such as ours here at the WRVHS). The $20 fee includes a great lunch from Fat Daddy's BBQ and all materials. See the flyer for registration details. Hope to see you there!

Hope to see you at the Workshop!

Plenty of family memories and tales are usually shared at reunions such as this circa 1954 Ingenthron family gathering. Unfortunately, these stories can be lost over time unless someone sits with the family historian and records an oral history. To aid individuals and organizations alike with this objective, Jeff Corrigan from the State Historical Society of Missouri will present the “Introduction to Oral History” workshop at the WRVHS in Forsyth on Monday, May 19. http://buff.ly/Oxa0ii
