Marshfield Story Project will bring together our community – young, older and in between – to preserve Marshfield's community memory through intergenerational dialog, oral history video interviews and creating a digital archive.
Here are highlights about Marshfield Story Project:
Marshfield Story Project is live on Digital Vermont! We are continuing our relationship with Vermont Historical Society and training from Paul Carnahan, Librarian and Marjorie Strong, Assistant Librarian. We now have a portion of our collection of images on Digital Vermont, and will continue adding images in the coming months. You can view the Marshfield Story Project section here: http://www.digitalvermont.org/MarshfieldStoryProject
Marshfield Story Project YouTube Channel We’ve created a YouTube channel to provide more space to store and view our larger videos. Currently, you can view the Marshfield Story Project Town Meeting Day Interview Video, the Twinfield Together Zoom Sharing Circle and the complete Kathryn Trupin Interview Video. More videos coming soon! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCD9hO1eDhxIp8sOkHHoxkiw/featured
Interviews Reconsidered During Covid-19 Pandemic Our interview schedule as been interrupted by social distancing requirements. We were able to complete the Twinfield Together Mentoring Sharing Circle using Zoom and we would consider future Zoom interviews or story-telling events. Let us know if you would like to participate. You can fill in the form below to contact us. Some ideas for sharing topics could be: • Critter encounters • Wild weather • Getting through hard times—Family Survival Secrets • Our changing landscape • Cabins, camps and cottages • Victory gardens, then and now
ATTENTIONYoungsters, Tweens and Teens! Would you like to interview someone from the community? Your grandparents, neighbor or local hero? Tell us your ideas and we can work together to make your idea a reality.
