A new app called StoryCorps puts conversations online and preserves them in the Library of Congress
While you’re all together this Thanksgiving, make recording family history a priority. A new smartphone app, called StoryCorps, not only makes it easier to record one-on-one interviews with your loved ones, but it also allows anyone to become a documentarian. Sign up and the app will suggest open-ended questions to get you started. Enjoy interviewing your family members and feeling good about preserving the memories. Then, when you are done, you can either save the interview for personal enjoyment only or actually upload it to the Library of Congress.

Happy Thanksgiving y’all
(yep, I’m a southerner!)
