This was a project designed to reach out to people in their homes, who may have trouble getting out, and help them record their Life Story. Everyone has a story to tell and over 18 months we had the privilege to help some people record theirs.  We went out to various groups to tell them about the project as well as advertising in local publications and local associations. Trained volunteers then visited people in their homes over several sessions and they then wrote up the life story. Once this was final and all parties were happy with it, a printed copy was made for the person to keep, and if they agreed the Museum kept a copy as well.
