Oral Histories and Audio Archives

We are collecting Oral Histories and Archives from ancestors and their descendants.

This is by no means meant to present a full picture of the history of the Amykles Villages. We seek to include the perspectives and stories of several narrators.

These oral interviews will be recorded and transcribed using International Oral History practices and permission guidelines. Stories will be written and walking tours created, according to data acquired from interviews with our narrators, archives provided by our narrators, external references, and other archival data such as newspapers, and collections provided by Genealogy Programs and organizations. Much of this history will be based on the memories of our village descendants, and while we will try our best to double-check and cross-reference information for factual accuracy, it cannot be entirely guaranteed. Our stories will be archived on archive.org.
