70 Degrees

70 Degrees

We capture personal and community narratives in video interviews. Social history emphasizes the importance of collecting every day perspectives. 70 Degrees follows best practices developed by the Oral History Association. We help you trace genealogical roots and preserve your heritage with tools like Ancestry and Family Search. Do you gather around the table to hear about the past from your elders and wonder if you’ll forget these experiences? Oral histories ensure that this past is never forgotten.

Oral history tradition comes from folklore traditions. The spoken word can be captured in audio and video format to allow access in the modern age. 70 Degrees uses a Zoom audio recorder and 4K/HD video recorders to create archive ready products. We use a three-point lighting system which can be used at your host institution or alternate site. Each oral history interview is accompanied with an abstract, recording log, transcript, photos provided by the narrator, a photo of the candidate at the time of the interview, and narrator-interview agreement forms. The release form expresses the narrator’s consent for the interview to be made available on online platforms. We can digitize ephemera and personal photos to accompany the interview record. We can store these materials on a password protected or open access web interface.
