Our last newsletter of October 19th discussed our ongoing efforts to post recently acquired rare historical documents. A substantial portion of what we received consisted of newspaper articles. In order to post these articles it is necessary for us to obtain permission from the newspapers that published the articles. Regrettably this process is slow and cumbersome. I can say that some of the larger publishing companies will not give us permission to upload these to our website. This is unfortunate. However, there are many articles and many newspapers to contact so hopefully we will have better luck with some of the other publishers.
On a positive note we have received a number of documents from author Terry Armstrong who has been most helpful in providing suggestions and guidance. We would like to thank him for his willingness to share his knowledge and research.
