Where to begin….

Last Wednesday I did my first volunteer shift at my local Historical and Genealogical Society.  Interesting.  I spent a good amount of time in conversation with the Society’s curator and Vice President.  Very enlightening.  It appears that they have a lot of records and documentations that have never been digitized nor indexed.  From a genealogical perspective it appears that there is a lot of really great things that can be done.  I’ll be very interested to see what may have been done in the past and what might be done in the future.  It appears to me that they may have many newspapers.  Stacks and racks of them from many years ago.  Certainly, it seems to me that if we could capture images of the births, marriages, & obituaries we’d have a place to start from.  Anyone have ideas about what might be a good way to begin?
