There is always a need for volunteers!
Transcription of old documents: Volunteers are needed to transcribe old documents including wills and indentures into searchable, digital files.
Sunday Docents: Sunday Docents are needed to open the museum on Sunday afternoons to show the exhibit and assist with research questions. FULL TRAINING will be provided.
Archives: Even the most amateur archivist would be a great help. No experience? no problem.
Photos: Digitization of the photo collection and entry of photographic information into the database.
If you are interested in volunteering please call the museum at 845 528 1024 or email PutnamValleyHistory@gmail.com
Hello, my name is L Robinson. My grandfather Oscar Marx Jr. born in 1899, was raised in Lake Mahopac. My great grandfather was Oscar Marx Sr., had a general store in Lake Mahopac. I am told that it was located across the street from today’s high school. It is an apartment now. I have pictures that you may be interested in. I have some pictures of the store. I live in the Austin, Tx area, but I would love to help any way I can.
Hi L. Robinson, are you still out there? Our county historian’s office came across your comment and would like to get in touch with you.
