Knox Historical Society has received $2057 from the Local History Grants Program, managed by the Public Record Office, Victoria.
The grant will enable them to convert a collection of 100 audio recordings with local personalities, some of whom are now deceased, from cassette tape to digital format.
Creating stories about local communities for present and future generations is something that enriches all of us. The Local History Grants program provides $350,000 in grants to community groups to preserve and share Victoria’s history.
The 2015 grants have been awarded to projects aimed at preserving, documenting and sharing Victoria’s historic past through exhibitions, oral histories, digitisation, heritage walks as well as online virtual mapping projects.
