Catherine Gillies

I have a degree in history and a Masters in Information Management and Preservation. I like getting opportunities to learn new skills but also help others with researching and the preservation of history. I have volunteered for different organisations, I’ve had a few projects dealing with WW1; digitising military tribunals for Tower Hamlets in which I learned about all the old jobs people used to have; project for the Scottish Refugee Council “Lest We Forget: Refugees Then and Now” dealing with the Belgian refugees and their parallel stories to today’s refugees. I have yet to be involved in a project involving WW2 and I am ready to volunteer in a research or admin based way.
