Robert Griffin is an avid history buff and genealogist. However, he has a problem: not enough space.
The former president of the Bergen County Historical Society and retired professional genealogist compiled an extensive collection of rare atlases, maps, and other ephemera related to New York, New Jersey and Bergen County history. Like many retired people, however, Griffin and his wife are looking to downsize. After moving from Englewood to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, he no longer has enough space to keep the massive collection as he would like.
"The collection requires approximately 116 linear feet of shelf space for books and periodicals, plus atlasses, art and ephemera," explained Griffin.
Griffin feels it is very important to him to find a new place for his collection "before it disintegrates any futher," he said.
