Announcing the Veterans Oral History Project!

WWII Oral History Project (1)

The State Archives of North Carolina & North Carolina Government & Heritage Library are proud to present the Veterans Oral History Transcription Project featuring 12 remarkable women.

The LSTA grant-funded and crowdsourced audio transcription project is one of the first of its kind!  We have 12 audio format interviews with military veterans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces for any military service, engagement, or war, and who were born and/or raised in the state of North Carolina; were stationed for extended time in North Carolina military installations; or have lived in the state for an extended time.

We invite you to be a part of history by helping us transcribe.

Together, we can make women’s military history more accessible!

    I AM INTERESTED IN SEEING THE LIST OF QUESTIONS THAT ARE ASKED VETERANS IN THE ORAL HISTORY PROJECT

      Hi Charles,

      You’ll need to contact the military archivist to see if he has that; you can find his contact information here: https://archives.ncdcr.gov/researchers/collections/military-collections/veterans-oral-history-program#conducting-a-veteran-oral-history-interview-with-the-military-collection.

      Keep in mind that some of these interviews were conducted a while ago (for example, one I listened to was done in 1998), so there may not be just one set of questions. Oral history projects (like all things) tend to change over time.
