We began as a thee-person team in early 2016. In the very beginning of this process, before this became an actual project, we thought it would be wonderful to be able to search the newspapers that are on microfilm by a name or phrase. Of course, there are many digitized papers available that offer this capablility; however, none for Eaton County. We knew early on that we wanted this to be a county-wide project.
Our location is the entire county of Eaton. Because we all live in Charlotte, we mostly meet at the 1885 Courthouse, downtown Charlotte.
We are staffed 100% by volunteers. All donations are directly used for the digitization of newspapers!
