Recently I began to index the Pioneer Settler files at the Sumner County Historical and Genealogical Society. I have to confess that I expected most files to contain at the most forty names, and that it would be a piece of cake to get them indexed in short order.
Oh, my goodness, was I ever wrong! There are as few as 33 names in some files, and as many as a thousand in others,and those require a lot of typing and sorting.
Whew! I still feel pretty ‘lazy’ for not getting through very many files in a week’s time.
But I’ve found some very interesting things hidden in those files, and will share some of that here and some on the SCHGS blog, too.
And today I posted Part Three of the copies of the John Arnspiger Gold Rush letters that were located in the Arnspiger Files in the Pioneer Settler files! Very interesting.
You can find that blog post here. And my apologies for not knowing how to make the blogger blog a little fancier just yet!
