Nothing has been more helpful than to take documents gathered in the past and to put them all together with the technology, new info, & fresh eyes we have now. And nothing has been more frustrating than to wade through document after document online to discover some new connections and info (yeah!), only to discover copies of those documents were sitting in some box or file of some family member but just didn't get passed on.
So in light of all of these reasons, and in an effort to combine the brains and brawn of the greater Locke family, I have begun a digital library of key documents for each of the Locke lines that come from Chester Co, South Carolina. I have added these photo libraries to the blog's sidebar, as well, but for convenience and excitement's sake here they are in all their glory:
I have already personally gained new information from just compiling and labeling these images and can't image what we can do together. Feel free to comment in the album. And please, we would love any other documents you have-- either as scanned copies or digital images. (Although I have included a few photos, I'm trying to stay away from building a scrapbook of relatives' photos here. I'm hoping mostly for this to be a compilation of historical documents that can be passed and maintained for future generations.)
