Native American Oral Histories - Record Your Family Memories

This is a beautiful video about the importance of recording Oral Histories, specifically the Native American Oral Histories. We are blessed in this modern age of technology where we can easily record and save our ancestors oral histories which will be preserved for your children, children's childen and down through the age. 

The Native Americans frequently taught each other their history by telling stories of their past. These stories are valuable in helping the children know who they are from and as a benefit helps them to know who they are. 

Now is the time for you to record your parents and grandparents stories. You will enjoy hearing them tell them in their own words once they have left this life. My family has recordings of my parents talking about memories from their life. They have all passed from this life and it brings me joy to be able to hear their voices. 

Consider talking with the oldest people in your family and record them talking about ther lives. We are also bleseed with the amazing cellphones which cannot only record audio, they can record video as well. The videos will be a treasure trove for your children, grandchildren, and on down through the generations. 

If you upload the videos or audio recordings using the FamilySearch Memories Mobil App which can be found in the app stores they will preserved for your children, grandchilden and on down through the generations. The Memories app can be downloaded from the Google App Store using your computer or phone or Apple App Store using your iPhone or iPad. 

I hope you enjoy this video.
