Oral Histories

An effective way to collect Church history is to conduct oral history interviews. Oral histories are a valuable tool for capturing and preserving information about historical events, major developments in Church units, lives of individual members, testimonies, and memories that may otherwise be lost. Oral histories also allow for in-depth analysis of a topic or event. Allowing people to use their own words can move them to share aspects of their faith, testimonies, and experiences that may not be recorded in writing.
