Using Oral History in Family and Community History Projects

Thursday, Sep 26, 6:30pm to 8:30pm

This workshop will take place at Communication Madison, located at 2645 Milwaukee Street on Madison's East Side.

Sarah White will offer concrete suggestions for planning, organizing, and undertaking an oral history project with your family or community. Learn what is oral history, how to conduct an oral history interview, and what you can do with the interviews you collect. This two-hour session includes getting to know recording equipment available for loan from the library and practicing interviewing.

This workshop is sponsored by the Living History Project. Living History Project volunteers and anyone interested in family history and community history are encouraged to attend.
