The national non-profit Story Corps has a mission to provide people of all beliefs and backgrounds the opportunity to record, share, and preserve their stories. Once again, this Thanksgiving they are hosting a nationwide event called, “The Great Thanksgiving Listen” where students ages 13 and up from all over are asked to help preserve the voices and stories of an entire generation of Americans over a single holiday weekend. SHM is encouraging people to interview someone over the holiday weekend. History is all around us, and many would be surprised how many interesting stories are part of your family’s history. This is a great opportunity to better understand and appreciate your family’s past!
Story Corps has a free app for any smartphone to download where you can record an interview with anyone. .After you publish your interview on the application, login to your account on StoryCorps.me. Don’t forget to tag your story #TheGreatListen2015IL. Click this link to the StoryCorps website with additional information. Join up with fellow Sycamore History Museum members today and post your families history interview on our Facebook page! Happy Thanksgiving from the Sycamore History Museum
