Oral History Society

The Oral History Society promotes the collection, preservation and use of recorded memories of the past, encouraging people to record their life stories.

Oral History Society logoNot everything is written down in books or papers and the wealth of information stored in peoples memories can tell us so much but over time this information is lost through the generations, that is why preserving as much as we can is important.

The oral History website gives people practical advice, support and training as well as raising standards in oral history practices across a range of activities.

It is a well respected voice for oral historians advising and collaborating with national organisations and research councils on oral history, supporting over 40 experienced oral historians as locally based Regional Networkers.

There is information on how to get oral history work funded as well as details of conferences and regional seminars.
