How to do an Oral History

Step 9 - Scanning pictures and placing in the document

Pictures provided by the narrator that add to the description of stories in the oral history should be scanned at 300 dpi, and placed in the document with a caption. Since this is a historical document "old looking pictures" that may have rips, stains, or missing pieces are very appropriate to include. Look closely at the pictures, as the background of the neighborhood adds to the historical document.

You will want to include a current (within the last year or two) picture of the narrator.

Figure: Note the old car and streetcar in the background:
