'''What is an oral history?'''&nbsp;&nbsp;
 
 
 
An oral history (as recorded at the Logan Center), is a video and audio record on a person’s life experiences.&nbsp; The depth and detail of each history is determined by the person being recorded and the individual who is assisting by raising questions, providing support and encouragement and gently guiding the interview with a pre-determined list of questions.
 
 
 
'''Why create an oral history?&nbsp;'''&nbsp;
 
 
 
*Cicero, a Roman statesman who lived over 2000 years ago said “Not to know what happened before you were born is to remain perpetually a child. For what is the worth of the human soul unless it is woven into the lives of his ancestors?” Creating your personal history is a way of creating bonds between you and your descendants so that their lives can be woven into and connected to yours.
 
*There are many reasons for creating an oral history. The primary reason that the Oral History Center was set up is to provide people an opportunity to share some of their personal history with living relatives and their descendants.
 
 
 
'''Types of oral histories.'''&nbsp;
 
 
 
A history may consist of &nbsp;a single session, or multiple sessions.&nbsp; They may be recorded at home, at the Family History Center, or in the outdoors.&nbsp; A staff member of the Center will be happy to discuss with you some of the options that are available.
