This is an audio recording of Wesley Fryer’s presentation, “Family Oral History and Smartphones” on May 3, 2014, at the annual Mo-Ranch Mens Conference near Hunt, Texas. The session description was: “Do you wish someone had recorded an audio interview with your great grandfather or great grandmother? How about your own father or mother? How valuable would an audio recording be in which one of your now-deceased relatives shared stories of their life growing up? What would it mean to hear that person share about their faith and their relationship with God, or how prayer and God sustained them through a dark valley in their life? It would be priceless to you and your family. Come to this session to hear examples of recorded family oral histories, and learn how to use free apps for your smartphone (iPhone or Android) to both record and share audio interviews with members of your family, church and community.” Access the slides from this presentation as well as referenced resources on wiki.wesfryer.com/Home/handouts/familyhistory.
