To our friends affected by the devastation brought to various areas by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, we continue to keep you in our minds and prayers. We are aware of many public, school, and academic libraries, courthouses, and archives which may have been severely damaged. We are interested to learn more about the record repositories that incurred damage. Are there genealogically significant records needing attention? We want to help where possible by:
1. Providing digital re...placement copies of damaged records if we photographed them in the past.
2. Exploring the possibility of enlisting volunteers and other help to salvage and rescue records damaged or at risk.
3. Offering to digitize genealogically significant records that have not yet been photographed and preserved.
Please share with us any information you may have to email@example.com and please share this post with others who may also know more about the various areas’ needs surrounding record preservation.
What exactly does an alnager do? Back in the 13th century, these officials were responsible for inspecting and measuring woolen cloth. That’s just one example of strange or extinct occupations that you might not have heard of before . . . or have you? Test your knowledge of these odd jobs and see how many you can get right. Which of these unusual occupations have you come across in your genealogy research? http://bit.ly/2ffb2Qt
