Share your family's pandemic experience with history through the Trail Museum

Family Journal Project, Trail Museum & Archives

These are unprecedented times. Here at the Trail Museum & Archives, we find considerable value in the journals, letters and personal papers of Trail's past residents. These records document the social history of our city. As part of your days and weeks at home, consider keeping a personal or family journal of thoughts documenting how current measures are impacting your life.

How is this pandemic affecting you and your family? What worries you? What gives you hope? How do you think life will change when this is over?

This is a unique opportunity for children, parents and grandparents to interact (safely) and help enhance the community record during this life-changing event. Begin your journal today. When this is over, consider donating it to the Trail Museum & Archives at the Riverfront Centre. We are creating a specific collection of research material and will happily copy any records you donate for your own family records.
