"Introducing New England's Hidden Histories" (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: "Introducing New England's Hidden Histories"
Author: James Cooper
Abstract: New England's Hidden Histories, a project of the Congregational Library in Boston, seeks to identify, secure digitize, transcribe, and post online New England's most valuable early manuscript church records. We believe these documents cast more light on life and culture in early New England than any other discrete set of sources. This presentation discusses the birth and growth of our project, and the many ways in which scholars and the public will find value in these records.
