Extra Credit I “The Beginning”

Extra Credit is new video series that examines topics related to history in the Thunder Bay District and exploring that history.

This first episode in the series details how I became interested in local history more than 30 years ago and how that journey has led to the videos that you see on my channel today. If you have suggestions or ideas for future episodes, leave them in the comment section. Enjoy!
