2012 promises to be an exciting year for us here at the Wairarapa Archive.
It seems we will be switching computer systems during the year, with our providers CIVICA using as as the beta testers for their new EXHIBIT programme. We have had some involvement with the development of the system and are looking forward to having as new and clean look to our database.
Our long promised revamp to our home pages should also be happening this year - keep an eye out for new designs and plenty of new features!
On the publishing front our we will be releasing the newest book from staff member Neil Frances, whose string of military themed histories continues with the definitive history of the Featherston Military Training Camp from World War One.
Our other author, Gareth Winter, has contributed a chapter to our upcoming Wairarapa Moana book, as well as the text for a largely pictorial book outlining the history of the Beetham family and their Brancepeth Station.
All in all, a busy 2012 lies ahead.
