Oral Histories – Your History Told Today
Do you have a Great Lakes Story?
We want to hear your experience with the Great Lakes! We are collecting oral histories from around the Great Lakes as a way to preserve our shared history. We want to be able to catalog these stories and, perhaps, be able to tell them in Inland Seas!
Did you work on a Freighter? Do you have memories of sailing through the Straits of Mackinac on a sailboat your grandfather built? Were you there when the river burned? Did you run a Hulett machine unloading iron ore? Did you perform on one of the passenger steamers one summer? The stories are endless and we want to hear them all!
Please take a moment to fill out the form below with your name, contact information and a few sentences about your story. We will get back with you to arrange a time to record your memories.
