If you think any of these posts are of value, pass them on, whether by reposting them electronically on Facebook, or Twitter, or your own blog, or by email; or by printing them out and handing them off; or the old-fashioned way, by talking about them.

They also are the caretakers of journals and letters and books and oh so many photographs containing historical information that cannot be found elsewhere.
