62. Launch an oral history project. From Studs Terkel to StoryCorps, there’s a rich tradition of storytelling as a time capsule of modern life. Documenting your neighbors’s stories preserves the fabric and history of a neighborhood, giving context to why this place and its people matters.

This is especially helpful if you and/or your people are the kind whose stories usually don't get told.
