Do you love listening to the stories of your parents or grandparents from their youth? Their adventures? Their trials? There triumphs? Has anyone ever told them, “You should write a book,” but you know it’ll never happen?
Recording Your Family’s Oral History
Those memories and stories don’t have to be lost. And, you don’t have to hire someone to write their biography. All you need to do is record those stories as they are told. Turn the recorder on your phone while you visit or purchase a small digital recorder just for those moments. Capture the verbal recollections and reminiscing while you still have them here to share with you. You will have their memories recorded in their own voices to listen to over and over again.
Oral History Transcription
What if you do want to turn those memories into a book or have them printed up for sharing specific stories with other members of the family? Kelsey Transcripts would be honored to transcribe your family’s oral histories into readable text.
Worried that your recordings may be hard to hear or understand? Let us be the judge of that. Our transcriptionists have years of experience deciphering speech under all kinds of conditions and from interviews with people of all ages and with a variety of accents.
Can you imagine a better way to preserve your family’s heritage than in the exact words spoken by the former generation? If you’d like some advice on how to achieve the best quality for your recordings or an estimate on costs, give us a call. We would love to hear about your project and will do our best to help you bring it to completion.
