US LIBRARY OF CONGRESS
Veterans History Project
The United States Congress created the Veterans History Project (VHP) in 2000 as part of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. VHP collects, preserves and makes accessible the firsthand remembrances of U.S. military veterans from World War I through the more recent conflicts. Anyone, including students ages 15 or older, can volunteer to participate. It’s that easy to make history!
Scouts can create collections at the Library of Congress, one for each veteran. Each collection requires a minimum of: 30 minutes or longer unedited audio or video recording of an interview with a veteran; and/or 20 pages or more of original, unpublished memoirs, journals or diaries; and/or 10 or more original photographs, letters or 2 dimensional art works.
SUGAR GROVE HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The Bliss House Museum maintains many collections of historical documents and photographs, and the Sugar Grove Historical Society has undertaken a project to digitize the collections with the help of volunteers.
