Follow along with one of our themed plans to take the guess work out of jumping into family history. Each month we will feature a different theme designed to help you explore all aspects of family connections.  

This month we are going to be conducting a professional family history interview, but in bite size pieces! You’ll see how easy it is to master interviewing with these easy to follow steps. The outcome will be a rich life history of one of your living relatives! Don’t worry, we walk you through picking who to interview, how to ask them if you can interview them, what questions to ask, what equipment to use and what to do after the interview. This month is all about Living family connections as you discover new family stories and crush it with interviewing!
