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 us abreast of preservation happenings in your region, firstname.lastname@example.org
Recently, someone has been spreading the news of R&R’s work in the Old 96 District. Not only has the website received a number of new members from the region, but R&R has been asked to provide a program for their historical society, as well as, one at the Laurens Library. R&R is excited with these opportunity, because the Old 96 region has historically been one of the most underutilized of R&R’s pages, (besides that of Laurens County which receives tremendous input). We sincerely hope this face to face opportunity will open many doors to sharing and preserving local history related to the region and stimulate further methods of partnering. The Old 96 District is certainly one of the rich bastions of S.C. history and few outside the area are aware of what it can offer. One of the sites needing help is Trinity Episcopal on Abbeville, S.C., please visit the site on R&R and donate toward its preservation: TRINITY CHURCH
R&R Update – 7.20.17
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 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.
