One of the most worthwhile ways in which the internet is being used is the archiving of oral history. People who have lived through all types of events and times are able to leave a record for future historians to consult. Here's just a few of the many good sites devoted to this. Some have transcriptions only, others have multimedia files of various types..

Suffragists - women who played a role in the acheivement of women's voting rights..

Varied California Oral Histories

Jazz Musicians - many of the greats, files require Quicktime installed..

Hiroshima Survivors

Holocaust Survivors

World War II (American perspectives - I am looking for sites from other nations also, if you know of any, regardless of language, please share in 'comments' section, or EMAIL ME)

Vietnam War

Folks from Tennessee

Nice, Varied Collection


The Diggers ( 'free street theatre movement' of 1960's..)

Incorruptibles - those 'saints' whose bodies don't decay

More on 'em... (also stigmatics here..)
