The Silverhill History Website needs your help!
Ways to help:
1. Collect information for the site:
- a. Old photographs of Silverhill people, places, and activities.
- b. Old magazine and newspaper articles about Silverhill and its people.
- c. Journals and minutes of Silverhill’s early organizational meetings.
- d. Old and new military photos of Silverhill people.
- e. Land Deeds.
- f. Wills.
- g. Any item that is related to Silverhill’s past.
2. Write something for the website:
Anything about Silverhill’s history or people, such as:
- a. Biographies,
- b. Family histories,
- c. Organizational histories,
- d. Silverhill memories,
- e. Interviews with older Silverhill residents,
- f. Anything else that is related to Silverhill’s past.
3. Type information for the site:
Old articles and papers that are scanned and put on the site need to be retyped on a computer so that their information is searchable by another computer. Computers or search engines can only search typed information, not photos or scanned pictures of information.
4. Translate old Swedish:
The old Silverhill Newsletters have a wealth of information in them on Silverhill’s early days and its people, but they need to be translated into English.
