Hi my name is Ann. I’ve been part of our Berowra Living History team since its creation in 2006.
My background is in many forms of education. It’s been a joy for me to connect with the senior residents of our area and listen to their reminiscences. It’s also been a joy to make contact with our four primary schools and find ways to invite youngsters and their teachers to continue to celebrate our local history.
Hi, I’m Elissa and I have only recently become involved with the Berowra Living History Project, though I have been a Berowra resident all my life.
My background is in Museum Studies and History, but I also have several years experience working with children and a strong grounding in online technology. I’m looking forward to using this technology to make the history of Berowra come alive and interacting with the community, both in person and online!
Hi, I’m Rhonda Davis, a long-time resident of Berowra involved in the Living History Project since it began. Working as a curator, I am fascinated by the way local knowledge can inform and change how we view history. I also have a long-term interest in Margaret Preston which led me to seek more information about her time in Berowra. Piecing together the story of this time was largely due to the previously untapped resources of local knowledge.
How those memories are recalled and retold is one of the main reasons I became involved in Berowra’s Living History Project. Retracing histories through oral history is enlivening to the listener, as each voice articulates the retelling of the story in a highly unique way and it is these stories which compels my ongoing engagement with the project.
Hi, I’m Robyn, a keen family history researcher and I have been involved with Berowra’s Living History since it’s inception in 2006.
I really enjoy chatting with people so it has been a particular pleasure recording the stories of our older residents. This website will mean those stories and others can be shared.
