These are transcripts of tape-recorded interviews conducted in 1975 by Robert Miller, Nancy Foster, Evelyn Sine and Dave Masters. The initial group of interviews were recorded in the mid-1970s with senior citizens of the Belleville and Quinte area. No interviews were conducted in rural areas, but several interviewees had been farmers, or were raised on a farm. 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.
