Claybelt Memories
Stories from Previous Generations
Volume 1

After the success of our Claybelt Chronicles project of interviews with seniors of the area, we started to realize that we had missed some of the stories from the previous generations. Although many of them had passed on, fortunately some of them had written memoirs which were generously shared with us by them and/or their families. In addition, starting in 1992 the Little Claybelt Homesteaders Museum had interviewed several seniors and their stories have also been included in this book. The lives of some had been documented by family members, an organization, or the Temiskaming Speaker. Still others were found in the Womens' Institutes Tweedsmuir histories.

This series is a collection of some of these stories. Our thanks go to the many authors for helping us to capture this past for future generations.
