Oral genealogies are part of gathering information of family In many countries, cause written documents are lacking and have only an oral tradition.

FamilySearch has made little effort to understand how to record an oral family history. this was introduced to keep Africa's oral history not to be lost forever.

African history is almost oral, most African tribes do not have a written history, they only have one narrator who is responsible for remembering the traditions, the names of the tribe including the names ancestors of the dead generation.

On Monday the project commence by going into the village with each team and identify the older people 35 years above.

Process of gathering information on fields

The origin information is taken from the oral interview and recorded during the oral interview pedigree for the control of informants. the notifier must indicate whether the persons concerned are dead or alive.
This is done on second part of the recording and record on the written documents.

Information about the informant and his relationship with the family is recorded
in the oral certificate of origin, this is done in such a way that the pedigree is linked in time and Position. To do this, it is in our interest to collect oral genealogical information
the information entered matches what the informant said, so he is also an informant requested confirmation of the correctness of the written pedigree by signing the declaration at bottom of the form.
