Does Bath Co. have a genealogical society? What a project that would be to
put all that information on CDs. Court houses have been known to have
fires, you know. Once the information is gone, it is gone. I work for
surgeons, and we have to keep all patient records forever and have started
putting the old charts on CD because we are running out of chart rooms. If
a company could come into the court house and copy all these papers on CD,
Bath Co. could sell the CD's to genealogists which would not only pay for
the costs incurred but make money besides.
Great Idea Ruby!
Wanna go into business??? Its the ones that got away..we fear....that will
hold the key that unlocks someones generation. I hope its none of ours tho.
