Oral History

 

The Friends of Falconer museum logo

The Friends’ are embarking on a new exciting project to store a digital record of Forresians’ memories to give future generations an idea of what life was like in the Royal Burgh in the 20th Century.

People will be able to listen to some of the recordings on this website in the near future and will be able to access all the interviews at the Falconer Museum later this year.

We would be delighted to hear from any local person willing interviewed as part of the project. If you are interested please Contact us
