Homer Audio Histories grew out of
a hobby - recording the stories of children; the life accounts
of adults and seniors; and the many experiences of military veterans,
missionaries, newly married couples and new parents.
For more than twenty years I have recorded the
experiences, tragedy, hopes, and dreams of individuals to preserve
these accounts in their original audio format.
It is a universal principle that all people - regardless
of race or national origin, economic status, or health condition
- want to be remembered by telling the stories of their lives.
We all appreciate reading and reliving the lives
of ancestors who took the time to tell their stories - whether
they came on the Mayflower or arrived at Ellis Island; whether
they were bank presidents or common workers.
While we appreciate those who took the time we
lament those who chose not to preserve their story ("How
I wish I had my grandfather's history - he was a real pioneer").
Their lives are lost in history because their memories - forgotten
in only a few generations - are not kept fresh in our minds and
Homer Audio Histories provides a convenient way
to record and preserve all these stories. While we cannot go back
and record the personal accounts of those who have gone before,
we accept the challenge to preserve the personal histories of
those now living.
Our motto - “Recording
our nation's histories - one person at a time”
- tells it all.
