~ Project Update ~
We are going to be working on this project for the next five years, improving as we go. We are eager for advice on the aesthetics, function, content and ease of use. Students in our classes and team members on the project will be transcribing, annotating, tagging, and posting letters, bound manuscripts and photos to the site. We plan first to complete the archive through 1842 by December 2017. Next, we plan to complete the Civil War years, 1860-1865. Then 1845-1849 and 1866-1872. We will keep you posted on progress. Thanks for your patience.
