JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen RE: Looking for "Oral Historians" in Louisville, Cincinnati and Wilmington #general


James R. Platt <jrplatt@...>
 

As part of working on my family history I am looking for experienced
individuals who could help take oral histories of elderly relatives in
Louisville, KY; Cincinnati, OH and Wilmington, DE. I would prefer people who
have done this before and thus can use their experience and expertise to
elicit as much information as possible while making the subject feel at
ease.

I believe that Hadassah used to have volunteers who did this, but I don't
believe the service still exists. Perhaps someone knows of an organization
that could help? I would expect to pay a fee or make a donation to a
charitable organization for the person taking the history.

Please respond privately. Thank you very much.
