Oral History

Preserve your family’s history for generations to come with our oral history recording service. We will conduct short, specific topic interviews with your loved ones, capturing their unique life stories, memories, and perspectives. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure high-quality audio recordings that will stand the test of time. The equipment making this endeavor possible was purchased with funds provided by the American Rescue Plan: Humanities Grants for Libraries is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) made possible with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.

Whether you are interested in a video oral history or an audio one, consider donating your story to the Ortonville Community Historical Society to keep these memories alive for generations to come.
