South West History Matters because it gives those that live here & others interested in the area information about how the area developed, what there was, what there is, & what's coming. Also, adding to Rochester's history and future vision. In this context the 19th Ward's History & Archive Committee is embarking on a series of Oral/Video documentaries.  The series will include historical information by the people who have lived in the 19th Ward & and business' & business owners who have been apart of the community in the present, past & still living & working here.  Not to stop with what was but also to include the revitalization of the area through new comer's who have moved here & start or enhance business' that make the 19th Ward a viable & exciting place to live & work.

The first Oral/Video history series has begun with Eddie DiPonzio the barber who has had & still has his shop on Thurston Road for the past 54 years. Eddie lets us see & hear about his life, his barbering & the "wonderful people" in the area that he has known for years. See his story on YouTube Eddie DiPonzio .

If there are any suggestions to add to the interview list that is being considered let me know
