Build a Rapport When Speaking to Your Elders
At the recent Family History Expo, in Atlanta, I appreciated the opportunity to listen to my cousin, and fellow genealogist Melvin Collier share with listeners, the value of developing a good relationship with family elders, and building trust with them, as one interviews them for family history data. He spoke about the value of asking the right questions and listening well, and the information will come forth. By doing this---we can have an opportunity to go back and get additional information when needed.
