Researching Community History

  • introduction to your local records office
  • exploration of suitable archive sources – what to look for, what to expect…
  • bidding for funding and organising a community reminiscence project
  • research planning and skills

I have provided research training for participants in community history projects for BBC Learning, the University of Worcester and Abberley WI.  Prior to that, I spent 10 years providing daily assistance to archive researchers at Surrey History Centre and Oxford University Archives.

I can provide short introductory courses or help lead your entire project – contact me for details.

‘JENNI!!!!!!!!! I just wanted you to know I haven’t been wasting my time down here in London. Thrilled to report that I have spent a day and a half at the Women’s Library and thoroughly enjoyed myself.’

‘I really enjoyed the introduction at the Hub last week thank you for that.’
