Oral History Project

The Isle of Jura Development Trust is to capture and share, through oral medium, the memories of the Isle of Jura’s community from the 1940’s to the present day focusing on factors influencing a unique island life.

Led by a part time project officer and with volunteers from within the community the project will record individual’s accounts and reminiscences of events that have influenced and shaped Jura’s unique way of life over many years. The oral history will be recorded, transcribed and used to produce a booklet and CD as well as being made available to the public on the island and via the internet.

THIS PROJECT IS BEING PART-FINANCED BY THE SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT AND THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY Argyll and the Islands LEADER 2007-2013 programme, Heritage Lottery and the Isle of Jura Development Trust.
