Amanuensis Monday

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.


Hear Rev. H. C. Jones Easter Sunday

There will be a special Easter Service at Bright Hopewell Baptist Church Easter Sunday Morning.

At eleven o'clock, Rev. H. C. Jones, Pastor, will preach from the subject "The Clarion of the Risen Christ." The Choirs of Bright Hopewell Church and Laurinburg Institute will render special Easter Music.

The public is cordially invited to attend the services. Every member is asked to be present and bring one friend with you.

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.
