To practice for the History Harvest, you will interview one of your family members about an object of significance to their family or personal history. Objects can tell rich histories, and it's your job to come up with questions to access those stories. If you cannot locate a family member, please speak with one of the professors individually.
- Ask a family member to select an object.
- Before the interview, use the Sample Interview Questions to formulate your own list of questions. Keep a record of the questions that you used. Read through these oral history tips for advice.
- Fill out the Artifact Form together with your family member.
- Interview your family member about the object they selected.
- Write up your report.
