Australian Generations Project – Tasmania

Life stories are fascinating. Everybody has a special story to tell about their life and events especially and event that left a lasting impression on them.  Oral historians find those stories a wealth of untapped history and reflection of years gone by.  We all know the corporate history of events but it is the personal stories that have the most impact.  Currently Ben Ross is collecting life story interviews with generations of Tasmanians born between 1920 and 1980. It is part of a collaboration with historians at Monash and La Trobe universities and ABC’s Radio National.  For full story including radio interview with Ben Ross, click here.
