An audience of GSMC genealogists on Saturday listened to Rose Ann Sigborn of the Danville Library explain the significance of titles in early Virginia documents. And by "early" we mean the pre-Revolutionary War era in the Tidewater region. Very interesting!

The Naval Armory in Indianapolis, built by the WPA in the early 1930's,
is now into it's new life as Riverside High School.
The school staff performed a ribbon-cutting ceremony last Thursday
and welcomed their second class into the building.
I attended the ceremony and toured the building with great interest.
The naval history adds a nice touch to the atmosphere,
and adds a move away from the general blandness of most American high schools.
[Schedule a tour yourself!]
A little bird on staff mentioned that a Naval History Room is in the plans,
so family historians may have another reason to visit the building soon.

Am I the only one who thinks it's bizarre that the Archives charges 25 cents for a photocopy and 10 dollars for a scan? Maybe they're including a 32G flash drive. Couldn't be labor--I can do a scan on my flatbed about as fast as I can photocopy a page. It's a mystery!
