Jottings – January 2009

DAAL Volunteers will assemble from many states in The Archive facilities during the days of April 20th through the 24th. Some will come for a single day, others for the entire week, but whether they come for a short stay or for five days, they will engage in the process of accessioning and preserving archival material.

Jottings – May 2008

AND IT IS SPRING! The crocus and bloodroot have already bloomed in our woodland garden as have the daffodils and tulips. Their places have been taken by Virginia bluebells and Siberian squills, by violets and bleeding hearts and delicate pasque flowers. The cherry and apricot have yielded to redbud and flowering crab and almond.

The spring volunteer week will be April 21-25. We look forward to seeing many of you even though we know it entails considerable expense on your part in terms of travel, lodging and meals. Already we have an invitation to Julie and Charlie Rohlfing’s.

The last Jottings alerted you to the fact that changes are afoot. Since then we have changed our name from The Danish Immigrant Archive to The Danish American Archive and Library. This new name more accurately reflects our mission and holdings.
