Talarm Hall Management Committee is delighted to have won a grant by the Australian Government’s ‘Your Community Heritage’ program to record the history of the town.
The money will cover the collection of oral histories and the establishment of a website. This stage of the project will be followed by the production of a book that will be launched to celebrate the centenary of Talarm Hall in 2014.
Telling the Tale of Talarm will create context between pioneering times, the Great Depression, our nation at war, the decline of the dairy industry, changes in farming and today’s tree changers.
It will explore the growing multiculturalism of present-day Australia and the impact migrants have had on Australia’s cultural evolution.
The author, Carrolline Rhodes, is seeking current and former residents of Talarm who would like to be
interviewed and anyone who has photographic or documentary memorabilia to do with the Talarm area and its people.
If you can contribute and would like to be part of this exciting project, contact Carrolline on 6569-5067 or by email: email@example.com.
The Talarm history project fits well with the services provided through the Nambucca Shire Library’s History in Print Project.
An area of the Macksville Library has been dedicated to historical research with relevant materials such as books and digital information available on computer. The oral
histories and subsequent book on Talarm will be a valuable addition to this collection as well as making the information readily available to others.
