Three new volumes have been indexed and added to the master library resource index located from the Records tab of any page. The volumes added were the indexes to the 1915 Events in Egypt book full of newspaper extracts from Marion, Herrin & Carterville. The years 1916-1919 are currently being typed up for entry.
The other two volumes added were indexes to Oldham Paisley’s Scrapbook Vol. 1, 1A & 1B which are Marion Daily Republican newspaper coverage of the Herrin Massacre and associated riots. The Paisley Scrapbooks were type up by Rhonda Hagston which were not easy to do because of the type size and condition. Thanks to Rhonda for her volunteer work.
The new additions add 6,463 references bringing the index up to 100,630 references. When the volume gets too large it will be broken down into categories.
