Congratulations to Julie Dresser from Sycamore, Illinois for her winning essay in the 2012 “I Found it in the Archives” contest held by Special Collections in SUNY Plattsburgh's Feinberg Library.
Her essay was also entered into the national I Found it in the Archives contest, sponsored by the Society of American Archivists (SAA). The winner of the national contest will be hosted by the SAA at its annual awards ceremony in San Diego in August 2012.
Ms. Dresser, who works as an elementary teacher's aide, has been an avid genealogist for the past 30 years.
