 "The New Year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written.  We can help write that story by setting goals."  - Melody Beattie

Here's what's new on the HCMP:     

  • Hooray - I have reached a 2014 goal!  The KHS yearbook collection has been converted!    I am now going to begin moving the Haworth High School collection over to the new software this month.    I plan to add additional KHS yearbooks as time allows, - so be sure to keep checking back to our  High School Yearbook Collection.   I have the 1974 through 1980 KHS yearbooks ready for publication...the only thing slowing me down is I only have ten fingers to do the data entries!  If you would be interested in volunteering with data entry, please  email me at mvess@khcpl.org.  I'd love to get ALL the yearbooks converted in 2015.  Oh, I've just made a goal!  First chapter, done.
  • St. John's Church, 1932-1964 has been added to our Church Records collection.   

 ~The Howard County Memory Project website was established in 2002 and focused on local high school yearbooks. Within this site today, you will find multiple databases and digitized items especially for genealogy and local history researchers. We continue to add items of interest and we hope you will check back often as this site continues to grow.
