The Maine non profit Oral History and Folklife Research, Inc. has launched a revamped website that includes full audio and full transcription of most interviews. The site contains interviews from three projects. The ADA At 25, a project completed in 2015, marked the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act, interviewing disability rights activists about their struggle for accessibility; the Last Sardine Cannery includes conversations with workers, managers, and fishing boat captains who worked in the sardine industry in Maine; and Immigrant Voices includes interviews with new Mainers.

Teachers, students and researchers can access the site and listen to podcasts created from interviews, read full interview transcripts, and listen to complete interviews, to learn what it was like to work in Maine’s now extinct sardine industry, or how new Mainers have adapted to life in a new home.

Oral History and Folklife Research is a 501(c)(3) non profit dedicated to preserving through sound, image and performance, the stories, voices and cultural traditions of Maine and beyond. OHFR engages with communities and families to preserve our treasured cultural history and the stories that illuminate it.
