People at the meeting
on July 12, 2009 during the Haworth Association National Meeting for the 310th
anniversary of George Haworth's arrival:
Ron Haworth (email@example.com (360)
757-8055 (fax 757-8097); Carol Ford (firstname.lastname@example.org
(301) 271-7608); ArJean Myers (email@example.com
(208) 233-0153); Wendell Haworth (firstname.lastname@example.org

Objectives: to facilitate connecting with all
members of the Haworth clan and to collect, preserve and make available
historical documents relating to Haworth family members and genealogy, and
provide a regular update to all Haworth Association family members of activities
and news of interest.
We determined that the best way to facilitate
connections among individuals is to develop the social networking that Beth
Haworth described on Saturday.
Therefore, we urge everyone to contact Beth at (719) 567-0911 or
email@example.com to obtain
assistance in setting up our profiles.
We determined that there is a need to have a
routine way to digitize and make available in the website research and other
historical materials of interest to the Haworth family members.
Wendell Haworth agreed to receive those documents and work out a method
to scan them so that they are searchable and can be loaded into our website
through Ron Haworth. Therefore,
contact Wendell at (402) 291-3956 or
firstname.lastname@example.org (copy Ron Haworth at
email@example.com and Joan
Haworth at firstname.lastname@example.org
) to tell him what you have and work out the details of transmitting your
notebooks, research, documents, historical photos, etc. to the website.
We determined that a newsletter reporting current
activities might be useful. We
already have NEWS in the website but the thought is that the newsletter might be
focused on the newest, most relevant activities, insights and findings.
Contact ArJean Myers (208) 233-0153 or
with material for the newsletters and requests for a paper copy of the
We determined that we should continue to
transcribe the relevant historical information on genealogy from the
Some Quaker Families volumes 1 - 7 that Carol Ford has been doing.
She will continue to work with Ron on these transcriptions so they can be
loaded into the genealogy database.
If you know of something in these volumes that needs correcting please contact
Carol at email@example.com or
Ron Haworth at firstname.lastname@example.org .
You may also call Carol at (301) 271-7608 or Ron at 360-757-8055.
Keeping our genealogical database up to date depends upon
input from all of the Haworths so please send all updates to Ron Haworth at
email@example.com or Joan Haworth at
firstname.lastname@example.org so that the
material can be added to our genealogy in the website.
We would like to create and maintain a list of
all documents and historical records any Haworth family member has that are not
currently in the website and the location and owner of these documents.
Therefore, please contact Joan Haworth (email@example.com
or 850-321-8013) or Ron Haworth and give them a description of what you have so
we can begin to create that list.
We also determined that the website needed to
have some explicit standards and may need some updated web design.
Beth and Ron are going to work on those standards and possible
We need additional people to assist us in these
endeavors. Those with web design
experience are extremely welcome.
People who wish to help Wendell with scanning and recording documents and
research we receive are very useful.
Anyone who can work on the newsletter or assist in sending out mailings
by email and snail mail is also very welcome.
Contact Joan Haworth, Ron Haworth or any member of the committee.
