Amanuensis Monday - Tours Planned

An Amanuensis is a person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another.

I am continuing to work on transcribing the many newspaper clippings contained in an old scrapbook that I inherited from my Aunt Martha after she passed. 
Many of these old clippings contain references to my paternal grandfather, Rev. H. C. Jones, during his time as Director of the Negro Home and Welfare Association in Winston-Salem, NC.

People and Events
Tours Planned

Rev. H. C. Jones, director of the Negro Home and Welfare Association, requests that all club members interested in attending the tours and the lectures on home decorating, which will be sponsored by the association with the co-operation of Morris Early and Company, Inc., please contact their respective club presidents at their earliest convenient time so that schedules for the tours may be made accordingly.


Amanuensis Monday is a daily blogging theme which encourages the family historian to transcribe family letters, journals, audiotapes, and other historical artifacts. Not only do the documents contain genealogical information, the words breathe life into kin – some we never met – others we see a time in their life before we knew them. A fuller explanation can be found here.

Amanuensis Monday is a popular ongoing series created by John Newmark at TransylvanianDutch.
