Welcome to this episode in the new series of Local History Matters, the podcast run by the British Association for Local History (BALH) to highlight hidden local histories. In this series, we will be discussing the different ways that you can engage with and share your local history research, whether you are a beginner or an experienced local historian.

In this episode, our Social Media Fellow for 2021/22 Megan Kelleher chats with our Outreach Coordinator, Stephen Miller, our joint Vice-Chair Jane Golding, all about engaging your local community in the local history research you are undertaking. This includes a discussion about the different types of engagement you can consider, as well as the types of community-based research you can do.

Stephen Miller is a heritage professional with a wealth of experience in working with museums, libraries and archives. He is currently the Transformation Officer for Barnsley community libraries.

Jane Golding is a heritage professional currently working with Historic England (previously English Heritage) as their Heritage Information Partnerships Manager.
