Albany--Remembering Albany's past by preserving it on tape is the new mission of an Albany museum.

Tonight, Thronteeska Heritage Center volunteers learned how to venture into the community to collect the city's oral history for the museum's archives.

They'll find people who have interesting stories to share about Albany's past and them record them.

The museum hopes to save those recordings for future generations to enjoy.

"We have a lot of older folks that we're losing and we would like to capture those stories before those folks are gone," says Tommy Gregors, the museum's executive director.

For information on how you can take part in preserving the city's past, call the museum at 432-6955.
