Appraisal of Historic Records Program Coming to New Woodstock Free Library

(New Woodstock, NY – Sept. 2012) On Wednesday Sept. 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the New Woodstock Free Library will host Dr. Suzanne Etherington Regional Archivist for the New York State Archives.

The workshop, entitled “Appraisal of Historic Records,” will introduce techniques to identify records that are necessary for adequate documentation of local governments and the communities they serve. Identifying records which have enduring value is one of the most challenging tasks of an archival program.

Seating will be limited for this class so please sign up if you are interested.

We are also offering a special program for attendees after the workshop ends. The New Woodstock Regional Historical Society will open their doors for free tours down the street from the library for any interested parties.

For more information, please contact Madison County Historian Matthew Urtz by phone at 366-2453 or by email at
