Seeking Long-time Residents of Greenport
I’m looking for volunteers or suggestions of interested individuals whose families have resided in Greenport for at least 4 generations, up to and including the present. Participation will involve an interview for a short 5-10 minute documentary piece and photographs of the eyes of members of the family, both ancestors and descendants, which can be re-photographed from old photos. The videos will be screened at an event during the course of the show and available for viewing by the public, via this site.
