Historical Society Enters Web Arena

Southold Historical sets up its first Website

March 20, 2003 -- The Southold Historical Society announces the establishment of its first website. The site, located at www.southoldhistoricalsociety.org, had been in the planning stages for some time, and will begin a new period of development for the Society.

The new site will host all of the necessary contact information needed to get in contact with the Society, including phone and fax numbers, email addresses, and mailing and shipping locations. "The site will make our various offerings available not only to locals, but to audiences worldwide," stated Geoffrey Fleming, the Director of the Society.

Founded in 1960, the Society entertains research requests that come from all over the country. While most are questions about lineage and ancestry, others have covered topics ranging from the history of a local jetty and questions about artists who worked on the north fork.

"What is especially exciting is we now have the capability to receive research requests from around the country, and the world, electronically," said Fleming, "it creates a great opportunity for researchers who are too distant from Southold to make first-hand-use of our incredible resources."

Though the Society's website will be small to begin with, there are plans to expand it over time as visitation to the site picks up.
