Ella Lubell joined us as a volunteer this summer to transcribe and research the diary of Albert B. Nye. She wrote a series of blog posts to share her research into Albert Nye’s Civil War experiences. https://nyediary.blogspot.com/ You can directly subscribe to the blog and receive her weekend posts in your email by filling in the “follow by email” in the right-hand sidebar.
We were very lucky to have NHS member Dan Collison offer to scan the diary and develop a “citizen historian” system where community members will be able to check the transcriptions and add their own historical knowledge. More information will be coming soon about how to become involved.
