Note from a Project Participant

One of the main aims of this project is to preserve stories that might otherwise disapear. Since the project was launched in January 2017, we have sadly lost several participants. Yet, the families’ grief has been softened some by the preservation of the family members’ memories–––especially their voices. LDS church leader Bunhuoch ENG expressed his sentiment in a note on the recent loss of his mother:

“I want to express my gratitude for the oral history [project]…. My mother passed away recently and I really miss her. Listening to her voice that I recorded for your program,  really makes me feel that she is still with me. I can listen to her voice as much as I want to. I can learn and know more about her history, and my great grandparents’ and my grandparents’ history. I am so grateful for this thoughtful program to record voice of people to keep for their generations to learn about. Once again thank you for this program.”
