The project will gather oral histories in rural areas of the Maritimes - Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and PEI as well as old photographs and artefacts. SMU will work in collaboration with the University of British Columbia for recording, digitizing and archiving the material, including the oral histories, on the UBC archival portal.
