Archival Notes, January 2019

A few more requests for genealogical and/or historical help have come our way. Dennis and I have answered queries, always within a few days. It is disheartening that we do not get so much as a thank-you and even when I request acknowledgement from them upon receiving the information, I get no response. Heads up to members, remember this when we ask someone for information/help. A Thank-you with or without a donation goes long way. We are volunteers.

Work is progressing on the Archival Finder data base. Allen and I have taken on the job, as the lack of knowledge of genealogy and of the program made the volunteers services not practical. We have devised a system where Allen can do most of the typing from home and enter the information at the library from a zip drive backup.

From the Glenwood Cemetery Association, PI, a copy of 17 pages of the organizational book from August 1893 to 1930. In original handwriting, officers names, schools where meetings took place and two burials, donor Ann Cushman.
