Recording and Preserving Precious Memories
August 28 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$32 – $35
This event is in partnership with WEA Sydney
The memories of older family members and friends add greatly to our understanding of the past. Those with links to local community organisations, such as societies, clubs and groups, also have their stories to tell. In this session Pauline Curby will discuss how the memories of family members and others can be recorded and preserved by drawing on both the techniques used by oral historians and modern day technology.
