Oral History Project

 

 Friday 16 January 2007 saw the start of the Brechin Oral History project organised by ‘The Friends’ and awarded a grant of 11,800 by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).   The project will preserve the memories of people in the Brechin area and is scheduled to be completed by December 2007. The oral history group has interviewed many individuals from diverse backgrounds and recorded their memories.   The project will focus on the 1920s to 1980s covering domestic and working life in the Brechin area. The recorded memories will be stored on digital discs to provide a valuable primary source of living history that otherwise would be lost. Current and future generations will be able to access the discs in museums, libraries and schools to learn about and appreciate their heritage.

The oral history CD sets are now available for sale through our online shop.
