Abstract


The East Texas Research Center borrowed and digitized the Cason Monk Funeral Home Records and provided free access to them online to primarily help genealogical researchers.  A Geographer has used these records to create new research data and a Historian uses the records and research data in the classroom.  

This session will provide a road map on how this multi-disciplinary project started and how it is currently and can potentially be used.
