Digital Storytelling: Sentimental Journey, produced by Shelia Sinclair

Discovering Our History, Telling Our Stories

Digital stories created by students in a collaboration with CCTV and Cambridge Public Library genealogy workshops

In late 2017, the Cambridge Public library began a collaboration with CCTV to work with students in the library’s genealogy workshops. The purpose of the program, funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and the Cambridge Arts Council, was to teach those who had been studying their families’ histories the technical skills to produce digital stories about their families.

Here’s one of those stories.
