Summary 79 manila files in 4 archive boxes (1 file per interviewee). Comprises handwritten notes and typed transcripts of interviews with daughters who provide information about their mothers and grandmothers concerning their daily lives and objects of value to them that have been passed down through the generations. Interviews were conducted between 1983-01-02 to 1987-03-03.

Also includes some photocopies of press articles (concerning Pat Giles), a photocopy of a family heirloom (a turquoise metal player holder), a newspaper clipping (containing information about one of the interviewees), and hand drawn family trees based on the interviews.
General notes This data collection was chiefly sourced from interviews conducted in person and over the telephone. In 1986, Melbourne publishers McPhee Gribble, with Diane Bell as author, won the competitive tender from the Australian Bicentennial Authority (ABA) to write a book about women in Australia for the 1988 Bicentenary. This data collection formed the basis of that book. Additional interviewers: Jane Lloyd, Val Kear, Daphne Nash, Bell Genevieve, Liz Cham, Floss Haig, Cheryl Hannah, Michelle Kosky, Patti Munro, Penny Peel, and Michiela Richards. These interviewers were chosen by Diane Bell, from personal experience or recommendations to her. Interviewers also located interviewees, recorded and indexed the interviews. Margaret Lanigan typed most of the interview transcripts.
