One of our members, Mrs. Vicki Knight will present a program entitled
"Preserving the Memories of Your Family and Friends." It will be a
workshop/demonstration about how to record memories and preserve
Vicki is a school teacher/librarian who has more than eight years
experience and has completed over fifty recordings of the late Mrs. Zuma
Magee and the late Mr. Daunton Gibbs, parish historians, and other
senior citizens, family members, and parish residents, WWII veterans,
and more. Mrs. Knight's desire is to preserve local history and
heritage and to create this desire in others of recording first-hand
accounts of memories.
The workshop will be an informal "how-to" using various methods utilized
by Mrs. Knight through experience and trial and error. She will 1)
make suggestions for what to consider before, during, and after the
interview; 2) cover the use of audio and video recordings in
capturing and preserving history; and 3) provide follow-up that
suggests ways to document and preserve the recordings.
The workshop will consist of sharing her methods and helpful hints and a
brief demonstration. Handouts will be provided.
This workshop is for all ages-- students and adults-- for anyone who has
heard interesting and treasured stories and who wishes to learn a good
way to preserve them. Everyone is invited to attend!
