“This is an exciting opportunity,” said LIR facilitator Mary Purcell. “We have a large collection of stories from our group members who have personal knowledge of the historical changes that have taken place right here in Milledgeville.”
Ethelene Jones, assistant facilitator, extends a special invitation to those who have stories they would like to share to attend this session and learn more about the project.
Oral history interviews will be conducted through June 2013. Walk-in interviews are available at Digital Bridges Knight Community Innovation Center, located at 127 W Hancock St.
“The interviews recorded in this project will be transcribed and available in hard-copy form and online for the easiest researcher access possible,” said Kate Pope, Special Collections staff member and project coordinator. “The goal of this effort is to not only record these histories but to make sure that citizens know about them and are able to use them effectively.”
To schedule an appointment or to assist in the preservation of these narratives contact Pope at email@example.com or call (478) 445-0098 for more information.
