If you have ever tried to talk to a family member about a memory, you will know how difficult it is to remember details . It is also hard to write it all down. An indispensable tool for keeping a record is a digital recorder. I also use a microphone with it for an older person with a weaker voice. There are some good ones around $60.00 by Sony and Olympus.
What I like about them is the way they can be put into the computer I’m using and I can write up the story constantly referring to the recording we made. Afterwards, I can make an audio CD for the person and his family. It becomes a treasure to keep.
It’s great. Try it!
Happy New year!
