Memories - Can You Help?

Listening to our oral histories online

After the successful Summer Show at Oaklands College the focus for the Where Do You Think You Live? project returns to the Memories collection.

Pictured here are two visitors to our show listening to some of the Memories that have already been uploaded...

At present we have over 100 oral recordings generously donated by residents of the town. With the end of the project fast approaching we are now trying to complete as many more of these unique personal recollections about the earliest years of Welwyn Garden City as is possible.

We have a band of intrepid volunteers who undertake the work of digitally recording these Memories but are also keen to add to their number... If you think you might be able to help please get in touch with us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

You might prefer to help in another way - we are keen to find more transcribers for our recordings. Do you have audio typing skills? If so and you would like to help us with this vital task please do contact us via the above email address.
