  1. Greetings.
    this is fantastic!!! I spend all day today at the annual mee meeting of Southwest Border Archivist Society–ran into former colleagues and friends. But the theme, of course is how to preserve archival and material and most importantly how to make it available to the public.
    what you did the pas 3 years is a monumental work that needs to be preserve for posterity and made available for new generations. so how are you going to make it available through your website, or contact other archives to make your work available to the public.?
    I was telling people today that I was in archivist heaven but it keeps on giving. Your email this evening blew my mind.
    Congratulations !
