The Elder Transcripts

The Elder Transcripts is a project that collects historically significant knowledge from the elders in the community. Much of the valuable information known by these individuals has not been written down anywhere, and as time passes these individuals pass away. With their passing so goes their knowledge and insight into the community's past. The urgency of this project can not be overstated. Many of the stories about people and events have been lost. However, there are still many stories to be told by many citizens.

Currently the Elder Transcripts Project is offline. If you wish to view the transcript database copies  are available at the following locations:

  • Admiral Digby Museum
  • Sissiboo Landing
  • Bear River historical Society
  • Digby neck & Islands Historical Society
  • Digby Regional High
  • St Mary's bay Academy
  • Island's Consolidated School.
