December 2013 Board Meeting update

At our December Board Meeting, we discussed many ideas that we would like to pursue from our long-term planning workshop.

One of our items is to add more content to our Members Section.  So, to begin that process, I have posted the scanned probate packets we have been working on at our Scanning work bees and will continue to do these as each letter (the letter the last name begins with) is completed.  The A's are completed and available on the Members Section of our website.  The B's will soon be completed.  This is a very long-term project as there are 17,000 plus probate packets to scan, with each packet containing anywhere from 3-500 pages.

Last week, I also put out a new design of our website.  The purpose of this is to make our pages more consistent with each other.  If you find any mistakes anywhere, such as a link not working, please let me know so I can correct it!  You can e-mail me at

Another big change for us is we have changed the days that we are open for research.  Instead of being open Monday-Thursday 10am-2pm, we are now open Tuesday-Thursday 10am-2pm.  This new schedule will be in effect until further notice.

After our meetings resume in the spring, we would like to consider opening the room for research for some limited times other than the normal hours.  For example, perhaps we could open one evening a month and one Saturday a month, which may help people who work.  We would love to hear from you what might be some open hours that would be helpful to you.
