How often have you heard genealogists say, 'if only I had listened more carerfully to the stories that my family used to tell me.'
Projects such as recording oral histories allow these memories to be saved.
Thames has an oral history project, run by a sub-committee of "The Coromandel Heritage Trust"
Further information is available via The Treasury website
The recordings can be listened to at The Treasury Thames, along with transcripts and abstracts of the recordings. These can also be purchased.
