Booth At Piney Woods Heritage Festival
The 9th annual Piney Woods Heritage Festival was held on Friday and Saturday, November 17th and 18th, 2011, at the Crosby Arboretum in Picayune, MS. Don Wicks was there manning a booth for the Hilda Hoffmann Memorial Archive.
Don passed out about 100 applications for membership and received donations and new memberships. Here is a part of the Picayune Item article reporting the event:
Don Wicks was on-hand explaining what the Hilda Hoffmann Memorial Archive is doing and its progress. Wicks said the late Hoffmann left behind 200 boxes of folders, five filing cabinets of information and thousands of pictures in her lifelong genealogical quest.
The Archive is now in the process of cataloging and filing the massive amount of information so it can be used by the public. The group also plans to digitize the collection on-line, said Wicks.
