Would you like to do some geneal­ogy? You prob­a­bly already have an idea of where you might fit in, but let me remind you of some broad areas of need.

Preser­va­tion Copy

We have four 4-drawer fil­ing cab­i­nets of paper records. If those records get lost in a fire, flood, or tor­nado, our thou­sands upon thou­sands of care­fully col­lected doc­u­ments are gone for­ever. We plan to run these pages through a scan­ner, one page at a time.

The His­to­rian, Pres­i­dent, and Web­mas­ter will each have a copy of the scanned com­puter files. That way, if some dis­as­ter hap­pens to the orig­i­nal, our records are safe.

We are look­ing for a few peo­ple who under­stand the impor­tance of this preser­va­tion project, and are expe­ri­enced in care­fully scan­ning doc­u­ments into their com­puter, and who have their own scan­ner. Con­tinue read­ing
