Where Help is Needed

The process of populating the archive’s knowledge bases (stories, memorials, research articles, etc. ) to a serviceable level (my personal goal) is not complicated when broken down into its individual parts and, for it to be a success, the input and participation of many is required.

Help is needed on the following fronts:

  • the identification and documentation of early Nolan family branches spread around the world and the creation of write-ups focused on the first two generations for each identified Nolan family line for inclusion in the “Family Stories” knowledge base

  • the identification, collection, digitization (OCR or transcription) of Nolan-related historical information likely to be of interest to the Nolan diaspora (e.g. Fr. John Nolan’s manuscripts, the Nowlin-Stone genealogy, Glenn Allen Nolen’s notes, excerpts of Nolan memorials from Reynold Fieldcrest’s Memorials collection, etc.) to be archived

  • the analysis and cataloging of the collected Nolan-related historical information, creating an abstract/summary for each item reviewed

  • the writing of articles/essays for inclusion in the “Research Articles” knowledge base

With help from people like yourself, the dream of creating a world-class “archive of Nolan-related information” as envisioned by the founders of the modern-day Nolan Clan in 1995 can become a reality. If interested in actively contributing to this groundbreaking project do not hesitate to contact me and we can discuss how you may best help with the project.
