11. Harry Dana French.
Our thanks go to Harry Dana French, b. 9 Nov 1895 in Loudon, NH, d. 8 Jun
1971 in Concord, NH. Lifelong French family researcher, whose research is now
stored at the New Hampshire Historical Society in Concord, NH, has solved so
many mysteries. As of Jan. 1990, we have acquired his material for Charts #1,
2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, and 20. He is a triple descendant of Edward
French, Chart #4. This material is not accessible in the stacks. The
collection of about 20 boxes is stored in the basement of the library. Right
now the format of these thousands of papers is either hand-written or typed
and printed from a poor dot-matrix printer. The program that printed these
pages is no longer available, plus the dot-matrix characters are monospaced
and, for the most part, unreadable by a CRT.
