Will you donate now to record stories? 1947 Partition Archive


Dear friends,

A little glimpse behind the scenes will show you that it takes a group effort to record and preserve EVERY oral history interview.  YOU are very much an essential part of this team, and this work is not possible without your contribution to the process.

Here’s a list of the players that come together to make one story possible: the Story Scholars and Citizen Historians who are recording stories in the field, the volunteer Archivists who monitor and help preserve stories as they come in, the Oral History Program Coordinator who oversees the detailed process, the small outreach team that brings you stories on the StoryMap online and Facebook, and the academics and advisers who guide the process.  It all starts with your support as the donor! You help enable the systems that enable all aspects of recording and preserving stories.

Would you make a donation today to help us record stories this fall? It’s our final stretch for this project which ends in late 2017.  We very much need your support to continue this work. Visit www.1947PartitionArchive.org

We’ve come a long way together, and we still have a ways to go. We know that IF YOU CONTINUE TO STAY WITH US, we can make this happen. 10,000 stories!
