Finally, a "big" THANK YOU to Barb
Jansen in Alaska! For it is Barb we owe our thanks for the foresight
and idea of bringing the Saint Bernard National Archive's historical
records to the World Wide Web for all to view. It was through her
encouragement alone that started me on the road to format all the data I
had collected over the past decades--data in the different files now
located in the Archives. Barb was the founding webmaster for the SBC of
America and we started uploading the "hundreds" of files back in 1998.
Enjoy, and welcome again to the Saint Bernard National Archives
and Hall of Fame!
