I'm Jaray Reeves, a member of the Community Tech Team. We digitize, research and publicize local archival materials. We've begun receiving identifications for some of our unidentified images from the community, and would like a place to feature these images. To avoid casting our identified images adrift amongst the the sea of unidentified ones, we will be using this blog to promote identified images.

If you wish to submit your own identifications, the Help Us page will provide a contact form and a collection of nameless images. For more information about our team, visit the About page.
