CHICAGO — Sycamore, Illinois, genealogist Julie Dresser is one of eight finalists in the I Found It In The Archives! contest, which is part of a national campaign sponsored by the Society of American Archivists (SAA). SAA asked archives users to submit essays or videos detailing their “discoveries” in the archives. Dresser’s essay, which was submitted to the contest by the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, describes how a trip to the Benjamin F. Feinberg Library at SUNY–Plattsburgh helped her discover priceless letters from her fourth-great grandmother.
