Always wanted to be a part of history in someone's book? Now's your chance.
The Jasper News is producing a pictorial history of Suwannee, Lafayette and Hamilton counties, and we can't do it without your help.
Yes, this is one production that requires the help of local residents who have held on to photos of historical value through the years and are willing to share. Your contributions will make this project successful and give the communities a tabletop edition in hardback that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Any photos through 1960 are welcome, names of those in the photos and a description of the scene is hoped for. All photos will be scanned while you wait so you may take them home with you when you leave. We understand how precious old photos are.
The book is expected to be available later this fall at many locations in all three counties, including the Suwannee Democrat in Live Oak, Branford News in Branford, Mayo Free Press in Mayo and at the Jasper News.
Order forms may be picked up now at all four newspapers. For more information, call Monja Robinson at the Suwannee Democrat at 386-362-1734, extension 105 or 1-800-525-4182, extension 105.
