Wikipedia defines oral history as the collection and study of historical information about individuals, families, important events, or everyday life using audiotapes, videotapes, or transcriptions of planned interviews. I’m not exactly following that template as I’ve never held any formal interviews with family members regarding themselves, nor our ancestors. Instead, this is where I will record memories of past conversations with family members about family members. Posts may be composed of one or two sentences, or entire paragraphs. Regardless, recalling and recording these accounts is important.
These are memories from a middle-aged mind. Details may be fuzzy, or just plain missing!
