Compared to its audio collections, the UHEC Archives has relatively little film and video holdings. Most of these are undigitized, but we are beginning in-house digitization of endangered VHS video tapes.
In 2020, we were honored to receive a County History Partnership Program grant from the Somerset County Cultural & Heritage Commission, a partner of the New Jersey State Historical Commission which allowed us to contract with a professional archival digitization vendor to digitize several 8mm and 16mm films related to Ukrainian American life in New Jersey and the vicinity. A selection of these videos are accessible here:
- Event in honor of the Ukrainian writer Ivan Bahrianyi
- Ukrainian Festival at the Garden State Arts Center
- Consecration of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Holy Ascension in Maplewood, NJ
- Holodomor commemoration at St. Andrew Memorial Church, S. Bound Brook NJ
Additional films will be posted soon.
