Everyday people, Amazing life stories

Just finished adding the list of almost 800 interviews. The data collection has been over one years work to compile as the interviews have been gathering dust for some years now. labels have come off, transcripts gone missing, duplicate recordings and lots of formats, reel to reel,cassettes, CD’s and notes galore. The collection needs a brief description so you can get an idea of whats there. So many recordings! Unbelievable!
