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
R&R has recently begun working with several new individuals and organizations in the Lowcountry region of S.C. and can’t say enough about the warm welcome R&R has received. But we need to especially thank photographer Gazie Nagle of Mt. Pleasant, for her continuing support and wonderful contribution of images to the pages of R&R. Recently, she volunteered to visit Summerville, S.C. and take dozens of house images for the website, images that were missing from R&Rs pages. Besides being a fantastic photographer, Gazie is helping preserve local history through her continued commitment of providing R&R with outstanding photography. Her work is scattered across the pages of R&R, visit one – White Gables
We have also received a significant number of new contributions to build the pages of Roots and Recall’s Charleston pages. These have come from across the nation and we are pleased that several have involved the preservation of African American family histories.
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.
