We have a newer computer in the archives. We were formerly using a WindowsXP computer, but now have a Windows10! Thanks to Ed Vavra for helping Barb to set it up!

 It took a while to get it up and running with all the software we needed, but all is a go now. We wanted to make sure our Museum Software would transfer successfully since we have 14 Years worth of information on it! We breathed a sigh of relief when it transferred successfully.

If you look in the right column you will see that we have also updated the on-line listings of of our Collections, Photos, and Objects. Click on one of them and a .pdf will come up. You can use the "Find" feature to search.

We know that people do use this feature, because they come into the Archives Room with lists of things they want to see, using the archive number (ex. A 2004.001.008 - Lutheran Church history).

We received a large collection (not yet fully archived) from a descendant of J.C. Dvorak, Ely's "barefoot mayor". It is full of interesting things, including a bowler hat he owned!

That's all for now!
