In 2006, the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum started interviewing our Temiskaming seniors to capture their stories and help keep the history of the area alive with as many first-hand accounts as possible.
First the seniors, with roots in the pioneer days of Temiskaming were interviewed. Then the tapes were transcribed, then edited to place the text into a first person perspective.To date  there are more than 280 interviews accomplished, and more are still being interviewed. This series of books contains 40 interviews each, and expects to be 7 or more books in length as the project continues.
Get a great look at our past from a personal viewpoint of the people who helped shape the present. If you're in the area, the Museum is open in the summer.
