The aim of the project is to continue the work of our Deaf History Group and develop a local resource which will detail the lives of Deaf people living in East Anglia from the earliest records found to present day.
Our Deaf History Group was set up in 2010 and had been meeting monthly to research their own family trees. As a result of this they have uncovered a wealth of fascinating information and photographs about our local Deaf history.
This is a three year project that will result in four DVDs, a Book and a website with a vast online database, that we hope will be accessible to all.
The project research has been divided into to four main subjects; Employment, Social Life, Family Life and Education.
The Norfolk Deaf History Book and the 4 films will be published very soon. Watch this space for more information.
The project has now come to its end. Thank you to everyone to helped and got involved.29/05/15
