Oral family history should be recorded and digitized to share with family
Digitize Family Stories

A family storyteller is someone within a family who takes on the role of sharing and preserving the family's stories, traditions, and history. This individual often possesses a knack for oral storytelling and may have a deep understanding of the family's lineage, anecdotes, significant events, and cultural heritage.

Family storytellers play a crucial role in passing down the family's collective memory from one generation to the next. They use their storytelling abilities to engage family members, helping them connect with their roots, learn about their ancestors, and gain insights into their family's journey over time. These stories can include tales of personal experiences, historical events, family milestones, and cherished memories.

The family storyteller's role goes beyond simply relaying facts and dates; they infuse emotion, context, and personal perspectives into the narratives, making the stories more relatable and memorable for the listeners. By keeping these stories alive, family storytellers contribute to the preservation of family identity, values, and culture, fostering a sense of belonging and continuity among family members.

In the modern digital age, family storytellers might use various mediums such as written records, photo albums, videos, and even online platforms to share and document these stories, ensuring they are accessible to future generations.

Digitize these audio recordings from cassettes or reel to reel tapes to preserve forever. These stories are priceless.
