  November 7 Quarterly Meeting

Join the Ozaukee County Historical Society on Monday evening, November 7, at the Cedarburg Cultural Center, as we focus on preserving and sharing oral histories. Our speaker for the evening is lifelong Ozaukee County resident, Dick Liersch, Founder of “My Living Legacy”.  


Dick LierschFor over 35 years, Dick has been video recording life stories. His passion for saving these stories has evolved from a hobby into a “how-to” compact disc called “My Living Legacy”, sold on Amazon.  Dick will teach us all the basics on how to video record a life story for both personal family use and for historical societies. He will cover the equipment needed and the “how-to” including the “who, what, where and when”—and the “do’s and don’ts” of the recording process.  Dick will also discuss lighting and sound and how to prepare interview questions.

The Ozaukee County Historical Society appreciates all the dedication and work that was accomplished by the volunteers at Ozaukee County Pioneer Village, Stony Hill School, and the Hazel Wirth Research Center in the past and present. Although most of the volunteers for OCHS are Ozaukee County residents, people from Washington, Sheboygan, Milwaukee and Waukesha counties also volunteer. OCHS looks forward to working with all volunteers as they help to preserve the history of Ozaukee County and make it available to present and future generations. Thank you for your service!
