Volunteers - Volunteers' Own Interests
One of our volunteers Godfrey Duffy, specialises in Irish Family History. He was able to contribute to the LEGACY project on minority groups which have made their homes in this region. His Irish Ancestry in this region dates back to the nineteenth century.
Volunteers have recently been working on Turner's photographic archive, selection of content for an exhibition to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the end of the First World War, and contributing to a "Vidipedia" project to describe audio-visual archives.
Members of the Jarrow & Hebburn Local History Group are passionate about their towns' heritage. Its communities, industry and development. Group volunteers dig deeply into sources of information only available at TWAS and make them more accessible to others.
