Welter will focus on the Iron Range Research Center (IRRC), home to hundreds of oral history interviews that date as far back as the 1970s. Participants will learn more about their ancestors’ memories, how IRRC staff are preserving these stories and making them available, and how you can volunteer to make these stories even more accessible to future generations.
