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!
