Memory Chains – Living, Working, Playing in the City of Burnside 1945-65

Presented by Anne Both & others

Memory Chains is funded jointly by the Historical Society of South Australia and the Burnside Historical Society. The BHS committee agreed that it was important to record for future researchers and the public the memories of residents living within the City of Burnside 1945-65. The three interviewers of this year-long project will discuss its timeliness, in view of the age of potential interviewees, including Society members. The planning and methodology used will be presented, including interviewing and the use of technology to produce the final product, and an evaluation of the project. With the permission of interviewees some snippets of interviews will be played.

Anne Both, a founding member of the Society and current Committee Member, has had many years’ experience in the Health Sector, interviewing people in a variety of situations. Meredith Ide, also a founding member and current President, trained as a secondary school teacher and later as an adult educator, interviewing over five hundred workers at Mitsubishi Motors. Jan Thornton, Society member, worked in the general health sector in the UK and Malaysian hospices, the Bureau of Statistics and community radio. She has also interviewed and written for expatriate magazines.
