Area Event: Oral History Workshop at Torrance Library

We pass this on for the Friends of the Torrance Public Library:

Oral History
documenting your life stories

September 10th, 2 pm

Recording oral history life narratives is a great way to capture the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people. Many genealogists and family historians use oral history to give life and drama to family trees. Archived oral histories preserve people's memories of major events such as the Great Depression, wars, the Civil Rights Movement, or the Women's Movement, or the Women's Movement as well development and change in communities and families.

Join us for an afternoon with Karen Harper, Oral Historian, community historian, and Past-President of the Southwest Oral History Association (SOHA). Ms. Harper will provide an interactive practice based introduction to oral history including interviewing techniques, outline guides, information sources, ethical and preservation issues, and product possibilities.
