NATIONAL ARCHIVES LAUNCHES HISTORY HUB
The National Ae
s and Records Administration has recently launched a FREE History Hub. This is an online support site where you can ask questions and reply to questions regarding NARA research. It is like a blog for researching NARA. When you go to the site, you create an account and then you can post questions and reply to questions just like you would on a blog site. The new site is a pilot for the next 6 months; hopefully it will be fully funded after that time. This is really helpful if you are preparing to do research at a NARA facility or just to find out what records are available and how others have used them. There is a section specifically for genealogy researchers. Link to the website is: https://historyhub.archives.gov/welcome
DECEMBER TEA WELL ATTENDED
Eight members and two prospective members were present for the December Tea held in conjunction with local chapters of DAR, UDC, and DAC. The tea was held at the Paris - Henry County Heritage Center in Paris during their annual Festival of Trees. Beautifully decorated trees were on display around the building along with other Christmas decorations. A variety of delicious refreshments were brought by chapter members and several people from the community also came. All were pleasantly entertained by Cash Caldwell who played his guitar and sang a variety of songs from Christmas to blues. For more pictures, click this link.
MARKING OF MANDLE HARDING HOUSE
October 10th was a perfect day for marking an historic site and the marking of the Mandle Harding House in Paris was an impressive ceremony for a home with an impressive history; click here to see the inside of the program which has the history of the house.
