About …

Remember when… is a personal history page where any member of the U3A movement can submit a personal history. You are welcome to submit a personal history of up to (about) 1000 words and it will be published on this web site.

Submitting your personal history

In 2020 this site is an archive and it is a tribute to those who established this anecdotal treasure.  The late Mel Davies of Toronto brought it together and it was last actively edited in 2013.

Perhaps this site has the potential to be re-invigorated with audio and/or video content from the many interesting “local history” focused sessions that take place in U3A activities throughout NSW each year.

Remember when… and PANDORA

The National Library of Australia aims to build a comprehensive collection of Australian publications to ensure that Australians have access to their documentary heritage now and in the future. The Library has traditionally collected items in print, but it is also committed to preserving electronic publications of lasting cultural value. PANDORA, Australia’s Web Archive, was set up by the Library in 1996 to enable the archiving and provision of long-term access to online Australian publications. Since then we have been identifying online publications and archiving those that we consider have national significance. Additional information about PANDORA (now part of TROVE) can be found on the Library’s server. Here’s a TROVE search for U3A Remember When as the National Library has included the Remember when… anthology in the Library’s archive of websites.
