Quaker Oral Historians

Primary tabs


The Yearly Meeting oral historians make high quality recordings of interviews with Friends, and then add an abstract (essentially a timed index) and other documentation to each recording.

The entire packages are lodged with the Oral History Collection of the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington, and of recent years also with Monthly Meeting libraries and Yearly Meeting Library if that is agreed with the Friend concerned. 

So far, the Historians have recorded the stories of 98 Friends.
