Wanted: Historical Items and Information


We need your help!

The Trenton Historical Society is always looking for volunteers to assist in our technology program, and to help catalog, transcribe, and digitize our collections for posting on the internet.

Do you have interest in digitizing old records? Do you want to be one of the few who get to see all the wonderful collections Trenton has in it's archives? Do you want to gain experience in using cutting edge computer techniques to assist in sharing Trenton's history with the world?

Our volunteers do everything from photographing historical landmarks, to transcribing records, to helping with genealogy research.

Contact us today, and see what you can do to help!
