Oral History

Oral history is the recording of one-to-one interviews. It is both a historical research method and a process by which historical records are actively created. The City of Sydney’s History Team has been generating oral histories for different purposes since the 1980s and now has a dedicated ongoing oral history collection program. This website is the primary access point for the City’s oral history collection. It is a work in progress and interviews are being added continually to the site. Interviews are arranged around particular themes.
