Chris   Shaw   has   taken   over   the   digital   archiving   of   the   EHS   along   with   a   detailed   record   of   the   paper   archives   made   by Suzanne   Holroyd.   As   might   be   expected   over   the   100   years   the   Society   has   been   in   existence,   this   material   is   extensive   but there   are   gaps.   Any   contributions   will   be   welcome.   In   particular   it   would   be   helpful   if   members   could   search   their   files,   both paper   and   computer,   for   material   between   the   late   1990s   to   the   present.   This   is   probably   because   most   people   who   wrote minutes   or   designed   posters   and   flyers   will   have   started   using   a   computer   during   the   last   20   years.   Chris   is   willing   to   scan   and digitise a small number of significant  paper records but cannot store paper and the Emsworth Museum has very limited space. Please   search   for   EHS   records.   These   may   be   in   manila   folders,   on   your   current   hard   disc,   backup   storage   including   flash drives,   memory   sticks,   DVD-ROM,   CD-ROM   or   even   floppy   discs.   Let   Chris   know   what   you   have,   and   he   will   arrange   to transfer it.
