More Photos Added…

1 comment

I have uploaded some more photos to the site. These photos were donated to use by Phil Hildebrand and Martha Miller and family. It was also pointed out to me that the site is rather confusing to navigate. To fix this, I made the links open to new pages on your web browser. I think why this site may be confusing is because I am actually using two web sites. One to handle this blog page and act as a gateway to the site that houses the scanned documents. I chose to it this way so more information or meta-data can be shared about the photos.

Coming up sometime this fall will be a list of residents at the Oakwood Cemetery. My eventual goal is to have a virtual tour of the cemetery, but that will be quite an undertaking. Until then, Take Care. Brian

I am starting to add some more photos to the site. There is one photo that is the just completed brick school building from 1945. Another is of Kathrine Holt. If you have any photos that you would like to contribute, please contact the Pleasant Hill Library at (515)266-7815. Every little bit will help.

Update, Links working, Omeka.net

After a few false starts, the site is now coming together. As previously mentioned, the 25th Anniversary Publication: Energy Source Book was made into an HTML document; that can now be found here. The rest of site is now complete with all of the links working correctly. I made the executive decision to house the scanned photos and documents off site and on a server hosted at Omeka.net. They have the resources, among other things, for displaying photos and documents with search tags built into their site. Since I am not a programmer, this made perfect since.

As of right now, I have only upload two pdf files that are associated with the Mutual Protective Association and two photos that showed some of the school children of Youngstown. They can be found here. More will be coming shortly, including a 1969 phone book and some parade photos. As always, your comments are always welcomed. Brian
