HUGO'S MODERNS:  1980S - Present

In Our Own Voices
Hugo Neighborhood Association & Historical Society
Modern Hugo Neighbors: 1980s Through Present
Modern Neighbors For purposes of the Hugo Moderns Educational Program, a Hugo neighbor includes any existing community members, their friends, or their extended family members who lived, worked, owned property, or wanted to, sometime from the 1980s through the present time.
Where is the Hugo community in which the Moderns reside? In some places it is a physical place; in other locations it is in the comfort of our minds identifying with place, family, and friends. The range of place can be narrow or more comprehensive encompassing northern Josephine County to the world of our distant connections. The following are some ideas about the more traditional ideas of place.

Traditional Hugo Region  The physical Hugo, Oregon is primarily defined by the boundaries of today’s citizen advisory committee boundaries. For Hugo, this includes the approximate boundaries of all previous small school districts around Hugo, including the territory along the Hugo Tombstone Quarry section of the Applegate Trail.

Program Development
The goal of the Moderns program is to develop brief biographies of recent Hugo neighbors (i.e., twosided brochures). A biography or simply bio is a detailed description or account of a person's life. It entails more than basic facts like education, work, relationships, and death—a biography also portrays a subject's experience of these events. Unlike a profile or resume, a biography presents a subject's life story, highlighting various aspects of his or her life, including intimate details of experience, and may include an analysis of the subject's personality. This project was initiated June 10 2008.1
Core Bio Information
• Moderns' Name, Address, Telephone Number, Birth Dates, Birth Places
• Two Important Pictures
• Marital Status
• Parents, Siblings, Spouse, Children
• Father & Mother’s Name, Dates & Birth Places
• Places Lived
• Education and Work Histories
• Favorite Hobbies or Activities
• Special Skills, Memberships in Organizations, etc.
History information for the Hugo Moderns education brochures is not limited to the core bio information listed, nor is it all inclusive of that information. The limits and opportunities are the interests of the authors.
Neighbors Involvement Critical.  Involvement by citizens is critical to a successful Hugo Moderns Program. A significant part of Hugo’s early history was its children and its many efforts to educate its children at home, in several local elementary schools, and one high school.
Community Roots
Genealogy, also known as family history, is the study of families and the tracing of their lineages and history. Genealogists use oral interviews, historical records, genetic analysis, and other records to obtain information about a family and to demonstrate kinship and pedigrees of its members. The results are often displayed in charts or written as narratives.
The pursuit of family history and origins tends to be shaped by several motivations, including the desire to carve out a place for one's family in the larger historical picture, a sense of responsibility to preserve the past for future generations, and a sense of self-satisfaction in accurate storytelling. All of these motivations are shared by the Hugo Neighborhood as
evidenced by its oral history program and its numerous history brochures about its community.
Social Networking
A social networking service is a platform to build social networks or social relations among people who, for example, share interests, activities, backgrounds or real-life connections. Social networking is web-based services that allow users to share connections. The main types of social networking services are those that contain category places (i.e., such as former school year or classmates), means to connect with friends (i.e., usually with self description pages), and a recommendation system linked to trust.
Hugo’s history web page is a community-centered web service promoting the quality of its rural life.
Quality of Rural Life. One of the ways the Hugo Neighborhood aims to best promote the social welfare of its Hugo neighbors is by collecting, preserving, interpreting, and researching its rich local history, and encouraging neighbor’s interest in the history of the Hugo area, in their geographic place, in their community. We know the quality of rural life in Hugo is enhanced through citizen knowledge of its history and the sense of community that a historical perspective facilitates.
Your Invited!
Although not a requirement, many times Moderns brochures are initiated by an oral history agreement request signed by the requester and the Hugo Neighborhood. The norm is that brochures will be finalized within the arrangements of the agreements or with approval of the living subject of the brochure, and the Hugo Neighborhood.
Do you want to share your "Moderns’" story? Your invited! Just ask an officer of the Hugo Neighborhood.
