DAR members learn to preserve family historical documents

THE FOLLOWING was submitted by Karen Collins of the Uvalde de las Encinas Chapter members, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

Members of the Uvalde de las Encinas Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution met Jan. 21 at El Progreso Library in Uvalde for a most interesting presentation from member Virginia Davis about preserving family historical documents.

Davis explained how families are losing their histories because pictures and personal papers are not archived for preservation. She told how the local library treats documents and pictures so that they will last for 100 years, and encouraged members to check into preserving their personal pictures and important papers so their history is not lost forever. Too many such records are stored in plain boxes where dampness and even insects and rodents destroy them over time. She displayed several properly archived boxes of records owned by the library.

Integrative healing is Connor’s passion, livelihood

by KIMBERLY RUBIO 

When Concan resident Joanna Connor made the choice to better her health, she found herself on the path toward helping others as well.

Connor has a Bachelor or Arts degree and Master of Arts degree in counseling, human psychology and holistic health. She is licensed massage therapist and instructor in Texas, New Mexico, and Hawaii, and a licensed public school teacher for grades K-12.

“My training, teaching, and practice in integrative healing extends over 30 years. Initially, like many of us, I was mostly seeking solutions to my own health issues,” said Connor, who has severe scoliosis and spinal curvature. “As a result, I was generally struggling to hold on to good health because of back and body pain.”
