Oral History Project

The Oral History Project is a joint initiative of the Burlington County Superior Court and the Burlington County Bar Association that began in 2006. An oral history or living history is the practice or tradition of passing organizational and historical information on to future generations by word of mouth or storytelling. These histories often contain information not available in any other format and are enriched with human feelings and personal accounts of local events.

The project is on-going and routinely sets interviews of senior members of the bench, bar and former court staff so their experiences are not lost. All interviews are recorded, transcribed and full videos are made. All materials originating from this project are stored at the Burlington County Bar Association, as well as the county library and local historical societies.

We will be featuring these Oral Histories on our website, with a new interview to be uploaded each month, so everyone has the opportunity to watch them.

For a complete list of the judges and attorneys interviewed as part of this project you may contact the Bar Association or Oral History Coordinator Jude Del Preore (609-518-2510).
