Yo, Los Angeles! Learn How (free)!
Saturday, April 22, 2006, Forest Lawn is holding a workshop: Collect Your Family’s Oral History. 2-5 pm. Brad Williams is teaching it. Follow the link to reserve your spot in the workshop.
Alas, I cannot attend that day. But I attended a workshop led by Williams two years ago (held on two consecutive Saturdays); it was excellent.

Everyone has 'em.
They tell where you come from. They hold secrets to who you are.
This site explores how to use digital tools and media to record and preserve spoken memories of family members.
Your host: Susan A. Kitchens (I got into this by talking to my grandpa; at the time he was 99 years old.)
