Follow Friday: Greenwich Library Oral History Project

   I discovered the Greenwich Library Oral History Project blog only by accident, but it is a pleasant surprise. The oral history project dates back over twenty years, recording the memories of local residents. The blog is much newer, dating back to April 2011. Posts provide a fascinating view into the project's inner workings.  Some posts describe the interview process or the memories of a retiring chair. Others discuss the interviews themselves. One hurricane related post harkens back to a resident's memories of the 1938 hurricane. If you have recent Greenwich ancestry, it's more than worth a look.
