May 2014 Update- Scottish Portal Project Coming to An End

It has been December 2013 since an updated has been provided on the Project.  So you would think there would be plenty to say.  However, this is not the case, you see the NB Scottish Portal project is coming to end of it mandate.  Most of the research has been completed and turned over to the Provincial Archives.   The next steps is the design and development of the actual site. As of March we only had to raise $8000.00 to allow us finish the project.  In April the project launched what is expected to be the last
fundraising initiative for the project.  This time around we  made arrangements with the Association of Provincial Archives of NB  to issue tax receipts for donations received.   We are thrilled to say we have  raised in less than a month $4010.00 of the $8000.00.  This means we only have to raise $3990.00 between now and August.  We can already share what the domain will be for the site.  www.nbscottishhistory.com ( remember it is not up and running yet.  The date selected for go live is November 30, 2014.

We can't stress how important it is that we raise the last $3990.00.  It is important to understand that we will not be able to put up a partial site with only half the information  It is a case it is all or nothing and as a result we still need our supporters help.

Remember all cheques are to be made payable to “Associates of Provincial Archives NB” and mailed to 221 Spring water Lane, New Maryland NB EC3 1J5 and please place in the note section of the cheque “Scottish Portal”.  We need to receive all funds by the end of August so we have a very small window of opportunity.
