Following the destruction of records in Franklin County, North Carolina earlier in the year, this article from Texas seems worthy of sharing. It accounts the preservation of Harris County’s (Texas) fragile records by a group of willing volunteers in cooperation with the community — exactly what the Franklin County Historical Society tried to do — except in Franklin County, NC it didn’t work out because of ego’s, unimaginative leadership, and a lack of vision for future generation’s interest in and appreciation of the county’s rich heritage.
