Oral Histories

In 2012, volunteers for the German Village Society continued in earnest a collection of oral histories from residents with long-standing ties to the community.  With a generous grant from the Ohio Humanities Council and more recent support from Villager Tom Grote, we have collected about three-dozen on-camera interviews each of the roughly 30 to 45 minutes in length. You can view them on our YouTube Channel.
