Hi Melissa --

Thanks so much for the suggestion! I'll definitely check out ATM. It's
possible I know someone there, which would make the process easier.

Speaking of which: Do you happen to know of any grant opportunities to
support projects such as this? (I'm a professional grant writer -- my "day
job" as musicians like to say.) I'm assuming the process of selecting,
annotating, and transferring such a large personal connection will be time
consuming. Not that I'll mind -- it's all been a huge, life-long,
non-profit endeavor (in spirit if not in legal reality); but a bit of
support would certainly grease the digital wheels.

Thanks again,
Wayne

Hi Wayne,
You might check out the Archives of Traditional Music at Indiana University
to see if it would be a good fit for your collection. Your content sounds
like it would fit with the mission of the ATM. Here's a link regarding
depositing materials there:
