  • 1974-1975, 2008

They also recollected times when lumbering was still an important industry and many saw-mills provided employment. Three women had been servants in the grand house Glanmore, now the Museum. Many had been teachers. A venerable clergyman gave insight into the activities of the Anglican Church earlier in the century. Wars were recollected, as well as ongoing militia activity.
Twenty-seven supplementary interviews were conducted in 2007-2009. These transcripts exist as electronic files only.
