Recently my great-grandmother passed away -- she was almost 96 years old! In her lifetime, she really saw the modern world come to be. I created this short slideshow for my family and at the end, I added a little clip of her sharing a memory of riding horses. (I had recorded her for a project I worked on in college about growing up on a farm.) Bringing together voice, music and imagery really touched our emotions. If there is someone you know who has stories to share, it's fairly easy to gather an oral history and you should do it while you can! You can interview them using a digital voice recorder (easily found online starting for around $25 on Amazon.) I liked this guide to how to interview someone. I edited the audio with a free program called Audacity. Then I scanned in photographs on my little desktop scanner and finally, I made the slideshow in iMovie. It took just a few hours and was such a special presentation for remembering her.
