Please lend your hands to help save thousands of pages and many decades of Flemish-American history. Do your part in helping make them available for researchers like yourselves by joining our “Save the Newspaper” team. We need additional pairs of hands for as little as a couple of hours a week. It may sound dramatic, but every hour saves a few months or more of history. A day in the library can sometimes preserve an entire year! The Gazette van Detroit published a Flemish language newspaper in Detroit for nearly 105 years and we are currently scanning and digitizing every page of every issue and creating searchable documents! It’s a delicate operation, but a relatively simple process. It’s a rare opportunity, rewarding and quite fascinating work. You do not need to know the language.
