They capture a moment in time and reflect the opinions and thoughts of the interviewee and interviewer at that time only. While all reasonable attempts are made to avoid inaccuracy, oral history interviews should not be understood as statements of fact, and do not represent views of Fairfield City Council or views that are endorsed by Fairfield City Council.
