History Herstory is in the business of recording oral history. Oral history is the recording of memories of people's unique life experiences. We record the memories of individuals, groups or organisations so that unique history is recorded for posterity. Oral history creates a record or complements existing records, preserving the past for the future. An experienced and professional interviewer supports the interviewee, also known as the narrator to retell recollections, memories and individual perspectives. The interview is digitally recorded so that precious memories are safely retained. We have a range of products and services.
Everyone's story is important and significant. Everyone's history should be told, recorded and kept for generations to come.
Retell Record Retain
Oral History is a powerful method of recording history, especially individual life stories. History is much more than mainstream dates, facts and figures. Oral history gives colour and life - adding personal perspective, and records history that would otherwise not be recorded and remembered. Voices, accents, vocabularies and individual expressions are conserved.
Oral history is an easy way to keep memories alive and is far less daunting and time consuming than a written account.
