Oral History Guides: Becoming Minnesotan

What are the Oral History Guides?

Print resources and a series of podcasts to guide you through the oral history process.

Here are some of the things you will be doing as part of an Oral History Project:

  • doing research
  • synthesizing information
  • writing questions
  • processing and analyzing the information gathered in the interview
  • presenting this new historical record to a wider audience
