Congratulations to the Prince George Oral History Group on their achievement and win of the first British Columbia History Web Site Prize for 1999 that was presented at the BC Historical Federation Conference in Port Alberni on May 6, 2000! Transcripts of several interviews, along with digitized audio of a few interviews, are available on the Group's Web site. Quoting from the Group's Web site:
"The Prince George Oral History Group is made up of volunteers from the community who have a shared interest in preserving the history and memories of the people in our region. While it is our goal to work with the various institutions in Prince George, we are not formally associated with any of them. Besides preservation, it is our goal to promote the oral history process by training people to record the interviews, to provide help with the transcription of those interviews, and to train people in the practical, legal and ethical aspects of oral history. We also want to see that the histories we collect are available to the community. Transcripts are available to the public at the Prince George Public Library, the College of New Caledonia, the Fraser Fort George Regional Museum, and the University of Northern British Columbia. Audio copies are also kept at the University of Northern British Columbia and the Fraser Fort George Museum."
