2012. Exploring Fairfax Through Family Papers: The John M. Sherwood Exhibit. Omeka.net site: http://sherwoodexhibit.omeka.net/. This site is the digital accompaniment to a physical exhibit created and installed in the Virginia Room at the City of Fairfax Regional Library in Fairfax, VA. I created the physical exhibit with a fellow volunteer, Ross Landis, from whom I learned a lot about the area and its history.

2010. Nordhoff Family Collection. WordPress site: http://ncatablog.wordpress.com/. This site is the digital manifestation of a collection of family papers that I processed while in Seattle. The site started as a way to share an inventory of the collection and gradually grew to include images, genealogical information about the family and about genealogy in general, a transcribed diary, and a Google map following the route of a 1913 expedition to Alaska. This was an amazing collection to work on and I was so pleased to be able to present portions of it digitally.
