Event description

Description

Personal Historian Marjorie Turner Hollman will provide hands-on experience interviewing and being interviewed. Gathering oral histories is a valuable contribution to saving and sharing the stories of our lives. Genealogists know that documents can tell only so much. Recording persons who have lived the story is an important piece of the puzzle in preserving our history and making it accessible for future generations.

Marjorie Turner Hollman has helped produce and edit personal histories and has conducted numerous interviews for the Library of Congress Veterans Oral History project. Her multiple workshops have been presented at area and regional conferences and she was a professional storyteller for fifteen years. A freelance writer the past 20 years, she has been published in local, regional, national, and international publications, and was the New England Chair of the Association of Personal Historians from 2012-2016.
