Hi Kelsey, and welcome to the SignWriting List. Your project sounds like a
good one. Perhaps you already know this, but just in case, since you
mention that your project involves history, we do have a series of history
articles on our SignWriting Web Site:

SignWriting History Directory

A few weeks ago, a reporter from Silent News, Alexandra Han, asked
questions of the SignWriting List, and several people answered her
questions. I understand her article has now been submitted to the editors
of Silent News for approval, and Alexandra is hoping to write a second
article as well, later, because she tells me her hard drive is full of
feedback from SignWriting List members! I think that is wonderful and I
want to thank everyone for doing that :-)

The reason I bring this up, Kelsey, is that you might benefit from some of
the responses people wrote for the interview with Silent News. Any response
that was posted publicly to the SignWriting List, can be read anytime. To
read previous messages, just go to this web site address:

Best of luck with your project, and I hope you will keep us informed!

Valerie :-)
