The Franklin County Publication Archive Index

Researching and documenting local histories can be difficult work, as any genealogist or amateur historian can attest to. Barbara Stewart and her colleagues at the University of Massachusetts have created a valuable Web-based resource for people interested in researching Franklin County in Massachusetts. Essentially, the Archive Index allows users to search for articles (organized by subject) from the Greenfield Courier and Gazette. Currently, the database only contains articles from the years 1870 to 1872, but this type of index may serve as an important template for organizations interested in creating such an online archive. Additionally, Ms. Stewart's remarks about the process of creating and working on such an archive of local documents will be quite instructive to others interested in this process.
