About This Site
Any small town has two important aspects. One is PEOPLE and the other is PLACES. We have tried to develop a site where both aspects of the PORT ROYAL, PA community can be preserved and shared.
WE ENCOURAGE ALL INTERESTED PERSONS TO UPLOAD DIGITAL IMAGES OF BOTH PEOPLE AND PLACES ASSOCIATED WITH PORT ROYAL DURING ITS PAST AND PRESENT. (Detailed directions for uploading can be found under "More Resources".)
The nice thing about digital images is that they can be shared without destroying or giving up physical possession of an original hard copy photograph. Everyone can then benefit from a collective scrap book that can outlast the bicentennial celebration and also be a continuing work in progress.
The graphic upload portion of the site is divided into two sections:
One of the sections is for uploading images of past and present PEOPLE with an association to Port Royal. This could be a great place to establish a virtual Port Royal Family Photo Album.
The other section of the site is for uploading images of past and present PLACES in and around Port Royal. Some of the pictures can be current while others may have been taken years ago. A sort of “Then and Now” representation can occur.
There is no limit to how many images any one person can upload, however it is hoped that they will be able to identify some if not all of the persons or places in the photos. Unidentified photos will have little meaning to others.
For purposes of this project, people and places associated with Port Royal includes more than just the borough proper. It also includes surrounding townships which may have a Port Royal post office address. Persons associated with Port Royal include those who live or have lived there, gone to school there or routinely attend a church there.
Since this will be a continuing work in progress, you may want to return periodically to explore the items that have been posted since your last visit.
