Say Hello to Joyce and Offer to Help
Hi All, Tri-Counties amazing site has developed to its present state because so many people have been willing to chip in and help. Actually, sometimes we have more willing people than I have administrative time to keep track of. So, I am going to try to get (and even harder, STAY) organized here and present all the projects and potential projects that we need help on. Some of these require local people but many can be done by capable and willing people anywhere. I'll try to separate them into those two categories. I'll also try to let people know the skill levels and tools required to do a particular project. To use a scanned image page you need to be able to view a JPG image.

It is important that if you take work to do, you are committed to doing it. It is expensive in money and time for us to provide materials and we don't want to have to do it twice. I will also keep track here of who has what as I sometimes send out a book and lose track of where it is. If you have material I have sent you that you have not completed please let me know.

Why Volunteer to help? Every volunteer has her or his own reasons for chipping in on developing this enormous digital online library. For me and many others, it is the opportunity to learn continually that attracts us and the wish to preserve the artifacts and memories of our local predecessors. Some volunteers have found just the answer they were looking for in their own research while typing for the site. Many people tell me that they want to chip in as gratitude for all that they have gleaned from the site. Some chip in just because they believe in what we are doing and share our concern that the lives of our predecessors be preserved. We all feel that this is a worthwhile way for us to convert our time, energy and skills into creating and distributing a body of knowledge that will live far longer than we do. For those of us who spend the most time developing this site, it is our legacy.

Thanks, Joyce M. Tice
