  Stories of the Past
Voice Recordings and Transcripts


Nothing is better than a family member recalling memories of our families history and past. They are a first hand account of people, names, and places sometimes lost to current generations. This new section here at will take the longest to develop. Unlike the database which took years, and the 10,000 family photos still being processed, direct voice recordings will not be placed online out of respect for the person.

Transcripts after being redacted for private information will be posted here when possible. In 10 - 20 years, this page may contain more than just One, the loneliest number.
There are many web pages on the subject of 'interviewing family members'. Roy learned to not interject unrelated personal stories ending up in diverting from the subject at hand. One suggestion: Pick an event and STAY on it. Or you will never get to the whole story.

Most of you will not find this of interest. However, those closest to the subject of the interview may someday treasure what is here. Due to space, unable to post videos.
