Before coming to the Center to record your story, think about and write some notes about events in your life. This article may be helpful in giving you further suggestions: How to Prepare to Record Your Story

Always consider these questions: Who? What? When? Where? Why?

HOW DO I BEGIN[edit | edit source]

The front desk will give you an ipad. Use your FamilySearch Account to log into the ipad. You then dock the ipad with the recording booth docking station and a prepared video narrator will begin to walk you through various ways to begin your story recording.

Each individual story recording is restricted to a maximum of 10 minutes. However, you can continue to record 10-minute story segments until your scheduled time is up.

The pre-recorded narrator directed options for recording your story are: The Interview, Share an Image, and Pick a Story Idea.

The Interview[edit | edit source]

When you select the “Be Interviewed” option, the narrator will ask you a series of questions about your life, your family memories, people you know and others questions. You simply answer these questions. Your responses and a video of you answering the questions is prepared and a link is sent to you. ???? how and when

Share an image[edit | edit source]

Talking about a photograph image is a great way to spark a story and expand to other stories. You will be asked to send a picture to the interview via text messaging. Everyone in the group will be able to see the picture and answer some pre-recorded questions to get started. After about three questions you are on your own to talk about the picture and share a story thoughts that come to mind. Your story and a video of you sharing these memories will be sent to you as a link in an e-mail.

Pick a Story Idea[edit | edit source]

If you don’t know where to begin, this is a great option. Several story ideas are presented such as, vacations, family sayings, engagement stories, and many more. You select one of the story ideas and a series of pre-recorded questions are presented for you to answer. Your story and a video of you sharing these memories will be sent to you as a link in an e-mail.
