Eileen Curley has been conducting genealogical research for over 10 years. She recently began scanning and preserving boxes of notes compiled by her great-grandfather, James E. Conlon, in the early 1900s. He was a clock maker and antiques dealer in Boston and collected a great deal of historical research on various clockmakers in the 1700s and 1800s, including photographs, handwritten notes and drawings. The grant award will help fund archival quality materials to preserve the originals. Eileen's hope is to be able to donate the original research documents to a local library or the New England Historic Genealogical Society where others may benefit from her great-grandfather's research. Antiques Roadshow should thank her!
