Oral History Interviews

Oral Histories- Murvaul Creek Area

Oral histories are an important means of recording stories and experiences of the past.
These interviews provide information about persons and places no longer with us as well as how larger historic events such as the Great Depression and World War II affected the lives of those living in the Murvaul Creek area.

Considered primary sources, oral histories are best used in conjunction with additional research and other oral interviews to ensure their veracity when individuals recount events oftentimes decades in the past.

Below are the oral histories' transcripts and links to the audio hosted by the East Texas Research Center.
