Please tell us a little about yourself.
I am a retired teacher. Now I spend my time at a health club where I go to classes in Yoga and Aqua. I also belong to a choir. My family and my grandchildren occupy me too.
What's your story about?
It is about my great grandfather who was a Huguenot and possible influences in future generations. It was a story I had heard from my childhood. My daughter Lila was particularly interested and so we decided to find more information on George Charlemont's background.
What did you find the most rewarding aspect about the workshop?
Listening to other people's stories, reacting to the human elements that were portrayed in their accounts and the realisation that the computer could play such an effective part in this process of storytelling.
How has this workshop affected the way you look upon your family history?
It is not just a matter of recounting dates but using photos and memorabilia to convey the essence of the past."
