Sorry for being gone so long. The snow has made my internet connection and trying to do research...interesting.
So far since I have not been able to drive anywhere, I have looked more into the questionnaires. I have been so fascinated by them, that I have been looking at them for the last couple days. I should probably move onto other things on the Library of Virginia website. I have seen in passing a collection on propaganda and I want to look into that to see if there is anything about our local counties in South-West Virginia.
I also need to message the Library of Virginia about permission to use anything Dakota and I find on their website. And I want to message about having microfilm on Virginia newspapers sent to us, once….the school post office opens again. As of right it is closed until further notice.
I also want to go back to Mount Empire one last time to look some more through the cabinet files. Though I am starting to believe that could become a dead end in the long run. But I don’t want to lose hope.
And lastly I wanted to share some of my research. In hopes that it could help others. Because I reflected on that copyright class. I have just posted a link to where I looked up the questionnaires and not a pdf or picture of one of the documents.
The link is on the Library of Virginia Website and all rights go to them and their wonderful historians.
That’s all that I can think to write about for now. I’ll add more as I find more on the Website. Until next time.
