Gathering information

The Interview Project

In July 2014, we began interviewing residents of our community.  In July 2016, we began loading each interview on Memorial University’s Digital Archives in collaboration with the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Our interviews are part of the ICH – Western Newfoundland collection.

Click on the images below to go to the archives.  All interviews have transcripts; most have links to the original audio file included.
