"Folklore, or Just the Facts, Ma'am" is for EVERYBODY. If you're doing research for yourself, or helping someone new start their own, this episode will help you to understand the whys and hows of using folklore-gathering skills to jumpstart your tree. I discuss a few examples of how folklore has helped me, and how asking the right questions in the right way will warm up any participant in a story-gathering session. Then, I give my ten-point plan for successful folklore gathering. AND - I announce my new Patreon account, where you can support the podcast and earn valuable rewards for as little as $1 per month!
