  News and Updates   

 August 2

Here's what's new on the HCMP:     

  • Our summer interns, Hillarie and Mary Helen, have added 3 new  Eastern High School and  4 new Northwestern High School yearbooks, respectively.  This month it is Mary Helen's turn to be on the hotseat and share her interests and about her recent trip to Ecuador.  Make sure you check out this month's Genealogy Blog! 
  • Our interns have also converted Volume 1A (1844-1852), Volume 59 (1937) and Volume 60 (1937-1938) to our Marriage Records
  • We have a number of volunteers helping with the Court Records.  Vivian and Cindy are transcribing NEW records, which I will probably be writing about next month.  Meanwhile, Mary is converting our old Court records to the new software.  She has just finished Court Roll 20.  THANK YOU to Vivian, Cindy and Mary!
  • Janice Blanchard is still working on our surname vertical files to make sure the names match with the Surname Index on our website.  This past month she added 200 more names.  File A-F is now updated!    Thank you, Janice! 

~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.
