How to Make Taking Oral Histories Fun!

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday March 4

5:00 PM  –  6:30 PM

We are excited to invite you to our second Kahaukani Conversations event, featuring author and historian Jane Marshall Goodsill. 

Join Ms. Goodsill in a lively discussion about her work as an oral historian. She will be sharing collection techniques, creative ways of presenting material, pros and cons of editing, use of photographs, and efficient ways to archive data. "It is not enough to collect wonderful historical information; it is essential to make it available to people."

Born and raised on O‘ahu, Jane Marshall Goodsill listened to thousands of hours of personal stories over the course of her career as a Licensed Professional Counselor. After retirement she served for ten years on her county's historical commission during which time, she refined the art of taking oral histories. 

Register by February 24 to enter a drawing to receive a copy of her recently published Voices of Hawai‘i: Life Stories from the Generation that Shaped the Aloha State.

This presentation will take place over zoom. Please register below and a link will be emailed prior to the presentation.
