Second, visit our Facebook page where you can make posts, upload images, and comment on other people's messages. It's an interactive place where anybody can share and appreciate the experiences of others.


2. I have what may be a valuable artifact that I would like to share or donate. Is the Committee interested?
 

   While the Committee already has a large collection, we are interested in filling historical gaps. The only way for us to know if you have an item that will compliment the archive is by contacting us. Give us a call, snail mail us a message or send us a scan/photo of the item as an e-mail attachment.

4. Can I have access to larger, higher resolution photos?
 

   The online archives are set-up for fast page loading, which is advantageous to the average visitor. As a result, a sacrifice is made to quality. Researchers may seek higher resolution images. Larger, higher resolution versions exist for all images that appear in the online archives. For access, contact the Committee.


5. What is the origin of the maps used in the online archives?
 

   The computer generated maps come courtesy of Google Maps. We are grateful for the use of such excellent maps of Southern Nevada. The site is yet another of Google's outstanding contributions to the Internet.
