Re: Spokane...any suggestions???
In Response To: Over 100 yrs of Spokane History collected ()
Unfortunately I can't convince my cousin to donate or loan the family history papers to either the University nor the Historical Society, both of whom are familiar with my family and would love to have the collection. He feels that since it has been in his father's basement for 50 years, he can keep it for another 50 years. He wants to keep it available for his grandchildren, who may or may not be interested. It would be a shame to see all of this gone. The collection has great sentimental value to my cousin (as well as the rest of our generation).I have scanned many of the more interesting pictures to share with them. I wonder if the University/Historical society would be interested in the copies rather than the originals. Unfortunately, I was not able to take the time to scan all of the articles too.
