Library Updates #2: September 2007-March 2008

In order to save bandwidth for our forum, I will be consolidating the notices regarding additions to our Photo and Document Library. This means that I will keep new notices up for a period of 6 months (more or less) and then the posts will be removed and their information added to an index of our library holdings.

Everyone is welcome to contribute material to library files such as these, which can be expanded or revised. If you have contributions you wish to make to existing files, or new files created from your own research, just drop me a line at

Remember, when you post something to our Photo & Document Library you retain the rights to your materials and they cannot be used anywhere else without your expressed permission.
