Sponsored by the Surry Digital Heritage Project, Surry Community College and the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History, this free Church History writing workshop, held at the  Museum from 10 am to 12 noon will include a discussion on the types of materials that are conducive to compiling a church history in an organized manner, the importance of assembling relevant records and other documents, along with storing these records and photographs in a safe place.

Kate Rauhauser-Smith of the museum staff will talk about the key role oral histories can play in preserving a church’s history.
Most congregations have older members who possess a wealth of knowledge about their churches and people attending who have passed on, which can be recorded for posterity by video or audio means. Rauhauser-Smith will outline the questions that should be asked during such interviews.

For further information or to sign up for this workshop, contact Dr. David Wright at or call 336-386-3252
