PORTHLEVEN MUSEUM

Products

DVD   

 When successful funding is achieved we will eventually be able to produce a documentary ‘Porthleven , A Journey Through Time’ from  the historic records donated  making it available to every home in Porthleven. We have chosen to place this on DVD because not everyone has a PC but most homes currently have a DVD player attached to their T.V.

Places where you can view the museum images

Simon   Stone   kindly   sponsored   and   hosts   our   museum’s   display   in   Out of the Blue and it acts as our window on the world. There    are    hundreds    of    images    depicting    all    aspects    of    village    life throughout   the   ages.   If   you   are   in   the   area,   just   drop   in   during   opening hours,   and   have   a   good   browse.   See   how   Porthleven   used   to   be   and then take a walk and see how it is today. A    permanent    site    for    a    digital    heritage    museum    may    well    be    the Institute Buildings in the future.

What does the future hold?

We   have   a   number   of   people   who   have   agreed   to   become   Trustees   as well   as   a   number   of   volunteers   with   in   depth   knowledge   of   Porthleven and members of some of the oldest families. Today is tomorrow’s history, We   intend   to   encourage   the   people   of   Porthleven   to   start   family   diaries to    help    maintain    a    perpetual    record    of    Porthleven’s    heritage    for generations to come. A   genealogy   website   is   now   freely   available   for   your   use located at our genealogy website - click tree image

Interviews, archive filming and documenties

The   people   of   Porthleven   have   already   donated   large   amounts   of   their personal   images   and   records   all   ready   to   be   archived   and   researched   in depth. To   achieve   this   we   are   in   the   process   of   applying   for   Heritage   Funding but it is proving difficult to gain their support. We   are   seeking   training   in   interview   techniques   so   we   can   capture older peoples experiences before they are lost for ever. Part   of   the   funding   is   to   create   a   DVD   eventually   making   Porthleven’s donated history documentary available to every household.
