Sharing our Knowledge
Part 17: Allied Families
Sharing our Knowledge is a series of articles about the Historian Archives Project and how you can become involved.
To the best of my knowledge, we all have two parents. Most of us who have studied the Strong side of the family have also gathered information on other non-Strong parts of the family.
In principle, everything I’ve suggested that applies to collecting and disseminating our Strong Family heritage, applies to our allied families as well. I see no reason why our Digital Library couldn’t include photos and documents related to other families, so long as they are correctly cataloged. We thus provide a greater service, and greater interest, to our members at large.
In principle, we can provide books on CD regarding these allied families, so long as we don’t lose our original focus. By providing an outlet for sharing their own heritage, we do a service to specific members, while gaining additional interest and widening our own scope of influence. At that point we have an established process, and can provide advice and experience. It’s a possibility… but a long way down the road!
