Summary

Summary

A practical step-by-step guide for gathering history from the people who've experienced it. Oral History for the Local Historical Society, a classic in the field for three decades, tells you how to start an oral history program in your community, how to select the right equipment, and how to interview people whose memories are a living connection to the past. Baum goes on to demonstrate what you do when the interviews are collected, instructing you how to transcribe and index them, store them, and make them available to the public for research. Oral History for the Local Historical Society is an invaluable tool for anyone who has ever wanted to capture the story of the past in his or her local community.
