The Formartine Oral History Archive

Folklorist Fiona-Jane Brown completed the Formartine Oral History Archive project on 14th May 2008. The collection consists of about 120 hours of reminiscences, songs and conversations recorded on CD by a number of oral history groups in the Formartine area of Aberdeenshire. Under the management of The Formartine Partnership, funding was secured from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the work began in 2002.
