Seeking Oral History Interview Subjects

The Berger Family

So much of what makes an area into a real community is the collective memory of its citizens. Realizing the vast repositories of local knowledge they are, the Nockamixon Historic Commission has begun collecting stories and remembrances from our township’s older residents. We recognize that when our most venerable citizens pass, much of our history passes with them, and we’re eager to gather their knowledge and wisdom for posterity.

In that effort, we’ve begun interviewing anyone who wishes to speak with us. We work from a set of standard questions, but welcome any additional memories of life in Nockamixon that our interview subjects are willing to offer. We digitally record the interviews with the intention to also transcribe them to a written record.

If you know of any of our local treasures who have important historical information to share, please let us know so we can contact them to schedule an interview at their convenience. Thanks!
