IMG 1471We Need Your Support!

 

The Sullivan County Historical Society is fortunate to be the recipient of a complete collection of Republican Watchman newspapers dating back to the 1820s. This wonderful collection was donated by Susan Schock and her family who were the long time publishers of the Republican Watchman.

 Many of the newspapers have been bound in books and many are loose.  The SCHS is asking for your help in preserving this collection and also making this collection of newspapers usable for researchers. We would like to purchase archival books at a cost of approximately $21 each for proper storage of them.  We would also like to purchase two kinds of handheld scanners so that articles can be scanned for archival and personal use.  In addition we would like to see if it is possible to purchase a large flatbed scanner so the entire newspaper can be digitized.

Would you consider donating $21 for an archival box? Would you like to contribute towards the various scanners that would meet our needs for this project? All donations would be welcome and acknowledged. Donations may be sent to the Sullivan County Historical Society, PO Box 247, Hurleyville, NY 12747. Or via the donation Icon above the Main Menu of our Website. Please designate the donation is for the newspaper archival project.  Money donated to this project will only be used for preserving and maintaining this great Historical treasure. Thank you for your participation in preserving the Republican Watchman.
