How Can You Help?

Why We Are the Best

Can you type?
Even if you can only use two fingers, we could use your help!

We have old newspaper articles, old books, and many more items that are loaded with Clarion County history.
Your Webmistress can send PDF files of material that needs to be transcribed. You can type in your own space and at your own pace, then e-mail the text back for uploading to this Web site.
