Event description
On December 6, SAADA will share what you need to know to archive and share your family stories.

About this Event

Whether you’re interested in stories from your biological or chosen family, this 90 minute workshop will cover everything you need to get started.

We’ll answer questions like:

  • How do you ensure photographs and other physical materials are kept safely?
  • How do you know which materials you should preserve and which to dispose of?
  • How do you digitize materials and make sure that digital files are not lost?
  • What kinds of questions should you ask in an oral history interview?
  • How can you get family members to open up about their stories?
  • And much more!

*** Event attendees will also receive an exclusive invitation to participate in a new SAADA storytelling project!
