History of This Project.
project was actually initiated last year, in the Spring 2001. Both
County Coordinators (Fulton and Herkimer/Montgomery) had obtained a
copy of the book and began collaborating ideas to set in motion the
transcription. Shortly thereafter, out of the blue, a dedicated
volunteer, Joan Redmond, offered to transcribed the book for us.
We were taken aback - this is a huge book - over 270 pages in small
typeset!! At this point, we had already posted some projects on
our volunteer board and asked some of
our regular volunteers to help us with this project as Joan
began transcribing away. A project such as this requires MANY hours of transcription,
HTML coding and preparation. This
project is far from complete - many hours are still required to complete
this effort. The results will be amazing by
the time the entire book is online.
And Joan, our patient and
dedicated volunteer, has taken the project a step farther for you- she has
included a surname index with each chapter, not part of the original
We hope you enjoy this work of art!
Many thanks to our Dedicated Volunteers:
