Historical Literature Preservation Project

Society for History and Research Education (S.H.A.R.E.) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, focusing on local, state and national consumers that have an interest in American history and a desire to pursue knowledge about the founding and development of our country.  The organization concentrates its efforts on those communities that are rich in American history but have been financially underserved and lacking in resources to accommodate the preservation of historically significant literature and documents.

There is a substantial collection of THOUSANDS of historical books and documents in Mississippi dating back to the late 1700s and early 1800s that is stored in a back room of city building, decaying, and the information is not available to the public.  Not only is the information not publicly available, but if there were a fire, a flood or any other disaster, all of this history would be lost forever.  The local community does not have the resources to reproduce and preserve this collection or make it publicly available.  Only 47.7% of the population in this community over the age of 16 is employed and 34.2% of the population is in poverty.

Society for History and Research Education (S.H.A.R.E.) will index, digitize, preserve and reproduce, and make publicly available this massive collection of historically significant literature and documents; S.H.A.R.E. will also provide history and genealogy research assistance services to the public; offer lectures, seminars and educational activities related to history and genealogy free of charge to the public; will offer a comfortable research area and free in-office wireless Internet access to local researchers; and will host regular activities to engage the community.

Your generous donation will help fund their mission and is tax deductible under IRC Section 170.  Please be sure to consult with your tax advisor.
