Pasadena Heritage Society Oral History Collection now online! #nlheritage

We are very pleased to announce that a new collection of oral history interviews is up online!

As part of our Collective Memories project, the Heritage Foundation NL, in partnership with the Pasadena Heritage Society - NL, has just placed a collection of oral history interviews (audio and pdf transcripts) online with Memorial University's Digital Archives Initiative.

The collection contains interviews with locals on their childhood memories, local businesses, the fire hall, entertainment, social clubs, railway stories and more. Thanks to Carole Spicer for her work in getting things organized, and to Michelle Tapp for organizing the collection and doing up all the metadata!

The oral histories from Pasadena will eventually be part of a larger collection of oral history material from the Humber Valley region.  You can browse the collection here.
