Keller family transcripts tell of a pre-war family who were all alive when the first bombs have been dropped in October 23, 2077.

The family members consisted of Alex, Tina, Kansas, Dad and Ralph (Dad's name is not disclosed in the transcript). The relations with each other are unknown due to the fact that there is little knowledge on each individual. Alex, Tina and Ralph may be the children of Dad and Kansas, but there is no solid evidence.

All of the family members (except Ralph) unfortunately died in the underground National Guard Depot (one turning into a glowing feral ghoul know as a Glowing One). Ralph is the only one of the family members who did not enter the bunker. Instead he had walked into a nuclear mushroom cloud, presumably killing himself.

The Keller family transcript consist of five transcripts located around the Capital Wasteland. The tapes are used to gain entry into the National Guard Depot armory bunker where the Experimental MIRV Fatman is located.
