2021 – Oral History Project
In 2021, we are planning to add to our valuable collection of historical records by embarking on an oral history project in the first half of next year.
The focus of this oral history project will be people’s experiences of the Uniting Church and/or its antecedent denominations in South Australia.
We need volunteers – people to volunteer as interviewers or prepared to be interviewees.
Training will be organised for interviewers in association with Oral History SA and the State Library of SA.
If you’d like to volunteer in some way, we would love to hear from you. Our contact details are on the right.
We would love to help you with your research (if we can). Please complete the form on this page as it will help us to help you.
