French Island Oral History Project

Last updated on 3 April 2015

Our member who lives on French Island, Angela Borelli, has been working hard for the last 18 months recording and transcribing memories of French Islanders in order to write their memoirs into a social history of this fascinating, and often neglected area of Victoria. The project titled "Grey Water: French Island Oral History Project" has been funded by a $5,000 Local History Grant, and is due for completion by the end of 2015. Angela has already started writing the social history based on the memoirs she has collected. We look forward to the completion of this valuable work, and a fantastic book launch on French Island!
