Keeping it simple!
When you became a Roots and Recall member, you were offered the opportunity to select geographic regions across the state, which are most applicable and appealing to you. Originally new members were allowed to sign up for all eight regions. But the feature has been so popular, we subsequently restrict selection, only two regions from now on. If you were one of the earliest members, congratulations, you will be receiving numerous email updates. If it is more than you desire, please feel free to login to Roots and Recall and deselect a few.
R&R’s email updates are designed to provide members, an opportunity to enjoy updated and feature sites within your designated sphere of regional interest. We will keep it simple, sending unscheduled periodic updates when appropriate – clickable links to explore at your leisure. Besides just reviewing sites on R&R, we too want to engage you in preserving pertinent stories and information. Tell R&R what you know about featured sites and who in the region might offer answers and offer assistance in our efforts to capture stories and preserve local history. Remember, R&R is a collaborative platform of historic data and your contributions are vital!
If you are a member of R&R, you too clearly love old houses and stories – preserve yours on Roots and Recall. And don’t forget, keep R&R abreast of preservation happenings in your region, firstname.lastname@example.org
A number of interesting updates have been made to R&R related to the Catawba Region but none have had the impact afforded by the donation of the Heritage Map Collection by Mayhugh. This massive undertaking of historic research and painstaking compilation of digital data, has resulted in a truly useful display of searchable 19th century plat maps from Chester County and elsewhere. This collection is being used extensively and we hope you too will explore the numerous maps offered by the collection.
R&R Update – 7.19.17
Over the past couple of months, we have traveled extensively across S.C. One of our most interesting stops was in Aiken, S.C. to meet with a group of enthusiastic historians, museum administrators and tourism officials. R&R is pleased to have been invited to share our own story. But more importantly it was a wonderful forum to showcase just how R&R is successfully working with archives and historical societies to help foster wider use of their facilities, historic resources and partner to preserve S.C.’s history.
