A BOOK of interviews that tells the stories of 39 Clarinda and Clayton South residents who have migrated to Australia has been launched.

The 100-page book with CD-Rom, called Blended Voices, contains photographs and English and native languages.

The Federal Government provided a $47,000 grant to complete the centenary of Federation project.

Federal Labor MP for Hotham Mr Simon Crean thanked the migrants who participated in the project for their “personal and compelling stories” at the launch.
