Claybelt Chronicles ~ Volume 7
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 150 interviews accomplished, and in 2010 more are still being interviewed. This series of books contains about 40 interviews each, and expects to be 5 or more books in length as the project continues. The complete list of people interviewed for all volumes is on the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum page, linked here. It will tell in which volume that person's interview appears.
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. The books are available from the Gift Shop there as well.
