Genealogical Communities: Community History, Myths, Cultures

A section of Genealogy (ISSN 2313-5778).

Section Information

Community history projects often include a range of activities: the recording of oral history interviews; encouraging local men and women to produce books and pamphlets on the histories of the locality; collaboration with school teachers to write resource packs which tie in with local history in the National Curriculum; heritage events, treasure days and carnivals; and collecting artefacts, archiving material and creating displays. People may receive some vocational training opportunities: for example, in interviewing or archiving. All of this work is collected on a website and sometimes published as an end-of-project book.
