Interviews with Seniors

Learn how you can obtain copies of interviews that have been conducted with seniors who lived in the Harvey region. 

The Harvey Regional Heritage & Historical Association, Harvey Heritage for short, presents interviews done with seniors who lived in the Harvey region.  The interviews were created by the HRH&HA and many of them were broadcast on CHCO-TV, a the local television station in St. Andrews, New Brunswick.   Ed Christie did the videography for many of the videos.  Dr. William Randall conducted some of the interviews while others were conducted by members of HRH&HA.

Harvey Heritage wanted to preserve recollections of seniors living in the Harvey area about how things were done in that past, who the residents were, and some of the blessings and the challenges experienced in days gone by.

These interviews are being made available as a fundraiser for Harvey Heritage to help support the work of the Association.  Individual interviews can be ordered for $10 each as a fundraiser .  Below is a sampler of interviews:
