2024 Valentine's Day Transcribe-A-Thon
For February’s Transcribe-a-Thon, love is in the air. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we will be transcribing letters sent between various couples from the Sandy Spring community throughout the 19th and early 20th century. The letters include members of the Bancroft, Bentley, Hallowell, Iddings, and Stabler families, with topics including expressions of love, family updates, travel experiences, and more! Because of their intimate nature, these letters serve as important primary sources on relationships, family history, and domestic life around Sandy Spring throughout its history.
