The project, Armenians of Whitinsville, has recipe index cards that have been contributed and digitized for the website, www.armeniansofwhitinsville.org. In order for the recipes and ingredients to be searchable, they need to be transcribed into the description field of each recipe. It can be a lot of fun not only seeing the old recipes that were handed down over time, but also the many American recipes, especially of the 50's through the 80's that are peppered into people's favorites. If interested, please let us know. I think a few hours a week would be excellent if you could spare the time. The recipe part of the website is here: https://armeniansofwhitinsville.org/items/browse?type=18

The site itself is a celebration of a community, but also a look at the diaspora and the process of Americanization. Recipes, in an unexpected way, have been an excellent way to think about this.
