Oral History Projects

"A big thankyou Sue for coming to Haddington and providing the Archive & Local History team and our volunteers with oral history training. We started actively recording and collecting oral histories last year for a village history project and a schooldays exhibition. We are also in the process of digitising some 300 interviews prior to transcription.

Your advice and guidance has made our project seem a whole lot more manageable, especially your guidance on summaries and transcription. We got so much more than we had asked you to cover at the training which was hugely enjoyable. We will be able to improve all our practices immediately as a result - thanks from us all".
