The first step for Community Research Volunteers
We have identified a range of ways to enable individuals and small groups to get involved:
A – as an “active CRV” or as a small group, with a focus on a specific local area to help create a map, with additional information and description of life in the area between 1650 and 1850
B – as a “specific interest CRV” researching and sharing information about specific aspect that may* be related to this story: e.g. Barmouth’s international shipping links. * even ‘dead ends’ are useful to get the big picture
C – as an individual “Reader” or online researcher
D – as a Member or Organiser of one of the ‘History and Heritage Reading and Research Groups’
E – as a “CVR Advisor” if you are a local historian interested in supporting this project
F – as a “Project Promoter” volunteering to take story of the project to local organisations and agricultural shows.
G – as a registered “Story Teller” representing the project to share the story/findings with local WI’s and Merched Y Wawr groups, Rotary and Lions Groups, Schools and Colleges, Young Farmers and others. We will create a list of “Registered Storytellers”
H – as a “Creative Contributor” exploring ways to tell this story using your skills e.g. as a spinner weaver or dyer.
I – as a “Creative Writer” presenting the research findings in a short story or poetry
J - as an Academic Historian with an interest in this aspect of history.
K – or discuss any other way you would like to be involved!
