Resources

Below are various links and tools which you may find useful if you would like to conduct some historical research yourself. You will find a guide we made giving you an overview of how to get going. Then there are links to various useful archives in Dorset and some guides on collecting your own oral history evidence, including useful information on editing files, so you can upload them on social media. Don't forget, Dorset County Archive may be interested in anything you collect.

We'd love to know what you're up to and what you think of our project. You can reach us from the 'Feedback' section or comment on our blog page.
