....Midge Frazel that is over at Granite in My Blood for this post.
Back in early December I saw several Facebook updates from Midge about her new digital voice recorder. She even posted a short clip of her first recording (oddly enough, she has a New England accent - who would have thought!) I had been thinking about getting some type of hand-held recording device but just didn't have the energy to research them. I'm sure you all know how it is - there are a million choices and it just seems like you should thoroughly check them ALL out. Well, fortunately for me Midge mentioned exactly what she had purchased. I decided that was good enough for me! Now let me say that Midge never said, "Hey everyone, go out and buy this." I just decided that if she was happy with it and could upload a clip so (apparently) easily, that was going to be the extend of my "research." Besides, I could order it from Amazon and it met my price criteria. [Here is a link to the product, if anyone is interested]
As I mentioned in a recent post, I used this as part of my Christmas genealogy game. I had my nieces and nephew record answers to some of the questions on their quizzes. So, here's my first attempt. I chose this clip because I knew I had some pictures from one of my Grandpa Quick's photo albums to illustrate it:
