Progress on the Sorting Job

Well, after two weeks, I've made a lot of progress on my sorting job for MHGS.  As things stand now, I have:

  • half a paper grocery bag of church directories, yearbooks and other things that will go into the general library resources
  • half a bag of things to sell, including some 1970's Bollywood postcards, one of which I found listed on EBay for more than $50!
  • about a linear foot of genealogically-useful things sorted into surname folders for the library vertical files
  • and a full tub of pictures that still need organizing.
If you're in the Wichita area and are interested in the Posey or Stockert families, there's some great stuff here.

One of the things in the photo tub is a photo album of pictures of Warren and Nancy Burbank, mostly taken on a 1951 car trip through Hannibal, MO, Wichita and Dodge City, KS, Colorado, and Nevada State Park.  There is an envelope with a San Francisco return address.  Every! photo is labeled, but they were taped into the album so many are stuck together.  I'm not finding any Wichita link, other than a couple of vacation photos, so we'd like to return the album to its family rather than store it on the off chance a Burbank wanders into the library.  Contact me!
