‘South Yorkshire Through Time’ – A new web-based community history archive for South Yorkshire

This brand-new website is bringing together community and oral history organisations and activities in South Yorkshire. This is currently being developed by Michelle Winslow (Oral History Society/University of Sheffield), John Tanner (/Oral History Society/Barnsley Museum) and Alison Twells (Sheffield Hallam University).

We are aware that lots of people in our region are doing exciting things with local history, hence we are:

· Creating a website to showcase and publicise community history events and projects

· Gathering all groups and activities in South Yorkshire ‘under one roof’ (virtually speaking)

· Providing opportunities to learn from each other about, for example, writing a funding bid, buying oral history equipment, developing books and exhibitions

· Providing an extensive archive of digital resources relating to South Yorkshire’s history

 

During the last two weeks of July – i.e. now! – we are compiling an initial list of community history groups in the region. We are seeking your help with this task and would be grateful if you can send the following information to Ingrid Hanson at this address: i.h.hanson@sheffield.ac.uk
