Oral History & Biography Editing

People want what is important to their lives (memories, achievements, stories about how their parents met, etc.) to be recorded and collated in memorabilia to be passed on to future generations. Copyeditors help to weave facts together in well-written stories, as well as fact check dates, places, references, family names, etc.

“Oral history is a field of study and a method of gathering, preserving and interpreting the voices and memories of people, communities, and participants in past events. It is both the oldest type of historical inquiry and predates the written word.”
– Oral History Association
