Welcome to Vanishing Past – OLD

I have been writing about local history, institutions and early care  for a number of years, with the Covid  Pandemic is has been hard to give presentations, have book signings and connect with the history centers, museums and those interested in history.  That is why I started this blog.  My writing and research generally involve field work, I like to find the original site-no matter how much it has changed.  I also like to talk to people who were connected to the history and if they were not directly connected- what is their impression of what occurred.  You will see, with the assistance of local historians, I can find history in the most common of places and with your help we can find more.  –Jim Boles
