Family time coming up? Interested in gathering and preserving your family history through the words of those who lived it? Or sharing your personal history with the younger generation? 

Troy Reeves, oral historian and head of UW-Madison Oral History Program, will discuss some tips and tricks to create an audio (or audio/video) record of your heritage for current and future generations. He’ll also play clips from the oral history collection to illustrate his points.

The Oral History Program’s collection–held at the UW Madison Archives–currently encompasses over 1,500 interviews (nearly 4,500 hours) touching on all aspects of the University’s history.

Food pantry contributions:   Mt. Zion Baptist Church

Both cash and checks payable to Mt. Zion Baptist Church  will be accepted.  Please enter "Food Pantry" on the memo line.

Parking:   Enter Oakwood grounds at the traffic light at Island Drive and Mineral Point Road. Take the left fork and then the second driveway on the right to enter visitor underground parking. Push the button for assistance. Park in any visitor stall; take elevator to first floor lobby where signs or a receptionist will help. When you exit the underground parking the garage door opens automatically. You may also park in a surface visitor spot (marked spaces along the drive and up the hill toward the large lot). On foot, enter Heritage (6205 Mineral Point Road) at its main entrance (third driveway on the right, at stop sign) or enter the auditorium doors directly from the lower drive.

Registration:   Advance registration is required.  If you are not registered in advance, you may not receive handouts.  If you or your companion registered for this seminar but cannot attend, please email or call the UWRA Office.
