Oral Histories for Archives


We’re in the final stages of the project which is a little sad but exciting to see show much has been achieved. A big hats off to all participants, partners and volunteers, a wonderful job all round. This week has been focused on getting the correct copies of transcriptions, permissions, burning files to discs and depositing with both Redbridge and Tower Hamlets Local History & Archives (visit – this post has a photo of the space). We really hope that these interviews will be helpful for future generations of researchers but also the general public. We hope that with this project we’ve highlighted that storing them in archives is a great preservation approach but it’s also exciting to use them in different ways. We’ve really enjoyed creating the youtube style soundbites and sharing them via out social media channels which has had a great response. Also, we’ll be airing them via a radio show soon. More info coming…
