Digital Archives Of Family Memory: Creation And Functioning In Educational Space


Computing tools and the use of digital sources and resources is a daily and necessary practice in modern academic and educational activities. This paper provides a brief overview of the project of the preparation and publication of essays-memoirs about relatives, whose fates are related to the events of the history of the Soviet state in the XX century. The territorial framework of the project is limited by the North-Western Caucasus, but the authors do not see any significant limitation in this aspect. The flashbacks contain a large photographic and other documentary material from family archives and funds of local and regional archives. The work on the memoirs was carried out directly by students and teachers of universities in the region under the guidance of professional historians who advised on ethics and methods of work with historical sources and collection of oral history data. The methodology and technical capacities of digital history were aimed at the integration of a complex of memories into a family memory archive. Thus, we open access to it for researchers and everyone who wants to get acquainted with personal sources. In addition, the technologies described in the paper, influenced the opinion of the authors on the preparation and presentation of historical sources of personal origin to a different extent. In this paper, the authors try to sum up the results in order to provide starting points for subsequent similar projects. In general, we try to understand the significance of the digital turn for historical science.
