Memoirs & Oral History Interviews
Live Recordings (Video or Audio). Important to you is the fact that we bring a standout, dynamic skill set to your personal project with our experience of over 30 years conducting interviews with people from all walks of life, working as investigative reporters, and performing historical research.
Because your project is being undertaken by experienced historians and journalists, all facts are checked and checked again so as to produce an authentic legacy. True, a person’s memory is never going to be a hundred percent on the mark and we allow for that. But in the background, we are working with documents, charts, and time lines and checking historical events to make sure the facts are ultimately presented as accurately as possible.
What is Oral History? These interviews seek to obtain first-hand information and perspectives from individuals about their business and personal events and day-to-day life. Oral histories focus on a person’s direct knowledge and experiences and thus can prove valuable to museums or other archives by providing these unique remembrances. A trained historian seeks to not only have the memoirist talk about their life or company, but to also impart their perceptions about life during the eras they have lived in.
Ten Year Bonus. For ten years we will migrate your recordings to the latest high-tech format. Technology advances with lightning speed. The reel-to-reel tapes and cassette recordings of the twentieth century are now all but obsolete. And today’s CDs are quickly giving way to flash drives. We do not want you to lose your treasured recordings due to these advances, so for ten years we will be sure your recordings are transferred to the latest digital format.
“When we were moving across country, we packed those photos in a box for the moving van. A day later there was a fire in the van and all our photos were lost.”
