After more than 10 years publishing the Hanneman Archive history web site, your humble correspondent can no longer cover the operating costs involved in this enterprise. So rather than risk having to take the site down, we turn to our readers and relatives to ask for support.
Since just 2014, the Archive has drawn nearly 33,000 visitors from around the world who accessed close to 84,000 page views. Our article count has topped 185, and the site includes thousands of photographs and videos.
We set up a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for:
- The online blog platform and cloud storage
- Software to edit photos and video
- Numerous fee-based research databases
- Local server storage for terabytes of photos and documents
- Archival supplies such as Mylar photo sleeves and acid-free albums and boxes
Let’s band together and support preservation of our shared history. Visit the GoFundMe page today!

Historical documents and photographs are the heart of any good family archive. The Hanneman Archive is already well-populated with more than 700 photographic images. Now we have added a documents section featuring a variety of declarations from our collection. Examples include ship registries, church death records written in German, draft cards, professional certifications and more. The page is among the links at the top of our home page.
The gallery will be expanded frequently. For until it is shared, a document is but a mere sheet of paper.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for The Hanneman Archive.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 7,100 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
