More than 100 volumes of marriage records and real-estate transactions from Denver's frontier days are being digitized. The volumes, ranging from 1859 to 1900, can provide a lot of information about ancestors who lived in Denver during those years.
Jim Kroll, manager of the Denver Public Library's Western history/genealogy department says the digitized records will become "an excellent resource for our genealogy and house-history customers" and will "document the unique stories of each (Denver) community."
The digital images will be stored in the Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries' Alliance Digital Repository (ADR) and will be accessible through a Web interface on the Denver Public Library and ADR website.
The Washington-based federal Institute of Museum and Library Services helped fund the project with a $779,000 grant.
