OGS "Ohio Story" Digitization Project is Funded!

You might notice a familiar organization in the list of SNAP grants that were awarded this year through the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board. I'll cut and paste their press release issued today. We'll have more information on our specific scanning project when it is in full swing in a couple months.

The Ohio Archives Grants are funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), an arm of the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) through their State and National Archival Partnership (SNAP) Grants program. The funded projects include organizing and preserving historical records and cataloging and digitizing records for improved access.
