Product Description
Genealogy Interview: When I Was Born
Students learn so much by interviewing adults about their lives. This worksheet is a perfect place to start. The interview has 16 questions and plenty of lines for answers.

These questions about subject's birth and infancy go far beyond the standard limited questions of: When and where were you born? What was your name? Good genealogy interviews seek out more than names and dates. The right questions open minds!

• Interview parents/guardians, relatives or neighbors to increase genealogical knowledge and gain understanding of differences in society over generations.
• Interview retirement/nursing home residents to promote community involvement.
• Complete the worksheet themselves as an autobiographical activity.

1. Assign the interview and include any special instructions you have.
2. On the due date, hold a class discussion. Ask students to compare and contrast the interviewee's experiences with their own.
3. Grade the interview, but try not to mark it up too much.
4. Ask the students to offer to return it to the interview subject. If this is part of a larger genealogical interviewing unit, ask the student to save the paper until all materials can be gathered in a folder and returned.
