New program records local family history

(Continued)

Children can also interview someone who has made an impact on their lives, such as a teacher, coach or mentor, Peck added.

Although each session will be limited to six interviews, people interested in recording their family members can call the museum to schedule a session by appointment.

‘MAJOR BENEFIT’

The program is partially funded by a $400 grant from Stewart’s Shops through the company’s Holiday Match Program.

The funding helped the Historical Association purchase a video camera for the project and will pay for other activities designed to help the museum make electronic documentation of the region’s history.

“It’s given us the opportunity to expand our own capabilities to record and interpret local history,” Peck said. “It’s a major benefit to our mission.”
