Crikey! An idea!

Try what my son did many years ago with his grandparents (my parents that is).  He used a small voice recorder and got each to recount things from their past - which they loved to do.  He kept those and occasionally we play back extracts - many giving a good laugh.  It is amazing what old people can recall when given the chance to chat.  He also had the presence of mind to show them snaps from the past - they were in most cases easily able to name those in them.  It helped him enormously in later years when he worked hard on the family history charts.
