Huguenot Historical Society of New Paltz New York Inc. (New Paltz, NY 12561-1415)
Josephine Bloodgood (Project Director: July 2020 to present)
Preserving and Digitizing the Historic Documents of a Colonial Hudson Valley community: New Paltz, New York (Implementation)

Cataloguing, conservation, and digitization of four collections from the mid-seventeenth century to the mid-nineteenth century: the Huguenot Historic Street Archives; the New Paltz Town Records; Records of the Reformed Church; and genealogical records of the mid-Hudson Valley. Online access to the collections would be available through NYHeritage.org and a stand-alone project website.

Historic Huguenot Street seeks funding to implement the preservation and digitization of significant historical documents from its own archival collections, as well as portions from the Town of New Paltz, the Dutch Reformed Church of New Paltz, and the Haviland-Heidgerd Historical Collection at the Elting Memorial Library. The proposed project consists of early-American documents ranging from the mid-1600s to 1830 (the latter date encompassing the point at which most enslaved people in New York State were legally emancipated). The grant would fund: 1) cataloguing and metadata creation, 2) preservation, as needed, by a team of trained conservators, 3) digital imaging, and 4) making these digital collections available online. The project is based on planning documents developed under an NEH Humanities Collections and References Resources (HCRR) Foundations grant (2018-2020).
