We are pleased to announce the availability of storage of pre-1900 documents by or
about Bucklins, for future researchers.
Read below for "How do I do it?"
We use the items for historical research and education. It also
gives you a backup of those documents, to refer to if some disaster were to
destroy the documents you have. Not only future researchers, but your own
descendents a hundred years from now, may want to see the document.
Your deposit with us of a copy gives you an added layer of security.
If you have not already done so, review the information and
cautions at our
Depository General Page.
To maintain the quality, manage the volume, and provide a simple and concise
method for the users of the site, we have the following simple guidelines.
We keep the Society Depository in an electronic format.
This provides maximum preservation for the future, and for maximum availability
for serious researchers.
We do not keep paper documents. If you send
something to us in paper form we assume it is a copy that we may destroy after
we make the electronic image we maintain for permanent storage.
- Along with each document,
please include in your email message:
# 1. the date of the document,
# 2. any printed or official source from which you
obtained the document,
# 3. who should be credited with furnishing the document,
or if you wish to be anonymous.
# 4. and any specifics as to what is not presented in the
document but you think would help researchers to understand the importance
of the document.
