In her paper the authoress presents, in the perspective of the biographical perspective, what old women and men think about their life, everyday life (from the perspective of the years- in the small local community) about the place where they live (biography of the place) and what do their learn (biographical learning). Elderly women and men living in the local communities that she studied, left in their narratives everything what fragile, unnoticeable, and apparently unnecessary by evoking to their past (researcher's youth) and relating to the present (researcher's age). Analysis of the obtained data revealed that the social bonds are the ones particularly important in the context of everyday life. The elderly (women and men), children, and ill people - the other - belong to the category of the exclusion, group that does not have the same rights to the narrations as young people, adult and health people. In her view the elderly, women and men, are marginalized in a double sense, on the basis of their age and their place of residence.
