Success

The Library of Virginia and Farmville-Prince Edward County, VA event went really well. We had an excellent turn out being booked both days. If you would like to see pictures of the event keep a look out on the Farmville-Prince Edward website, just google. I appreciate having had the opportunity to participate in this Sesquicentennial event and look forward to working with them again. If you recall this project was to travel the counties and towns of Virginia and scan private collections or perhaps just a few items that people own. The items can not have been published before and cover the time period 1859-1867, or there abouts.I urge again all Virginians to search their boxes, closets, and safe places and participate in this project. It is an awesome way to preserve your history.
