Front cover of book, Kingston Narratives Project.

The Kingston Narratives Project is an oral history project designed to capture the memories of people who lived in the area today covered by the City of Kingston between 1901 to 1927. Themes included: work, schooling, and role of women, the church, tragedies, government and recreation.

With assistance from the Federation Community Projects Program and members of the Kingston Historical Societies Network, twenty-six members of the local community were identified for interview. The results of this work are recorded in two volumes; Talking with Piri and Talking with Frank. From these transcripts, eleven articles were written for inclusion on the Kingston Historical Web Site.

The Federation Community Projects Program, is an initiative of the Commonwealth Government of Australia. Through this program the Commonwealth Government provides funds to communities to commemorate the Centenary of Federation in Australia in 2001.
