Oral History Training Continues

Oral History volunteers Warren Clayman and Harriet Lynn practice their interview technique.

30+ volunteers came to our Oral History Training Workshop on Sunday, February 28th. These volunteers will be helping the Museum conduct interviews with 50 prominent community members in conjunction with our 50th Anniversary Oral History Initiative. Project Consultant Jayne Guberman taught the ins and outs of asking probing questions.

Project Coordinator Jobi Zink is offering several hands-on training classes to work the new Marantz recorders. This refresher class will help the volunteers become familiar and comfortable with the equipment.

Upcoming training (for those who attended the workshop on 2/28) will be held at 11 AM on Wednesday March 24 and 2 PM on Thursday March 25. RSVP to Jobi at (410) 732-6400 ext. 226 or jzink@jewishmuseummd.org.

We’ll be holding a second training later this spring. Keep your eyes open for more information.
