In 1998 our Carmelite community at Saranac Lake, NY combined with the communities of Carmelites from Barre, Vt and Beacon, NY to form a new Carmelite community here in Beacon. When we moved down from Saranac Lake, several file cabinets and boxes of unsorted papers and records moved down with us. These papers and records date back to the foundation of the Saranac Lake Carmelite Monastery in 1952. We are looking for someone experienced in sorting, appraising and assessing the value of papers and documents, organizing, classifying and preparing them for archival storage, letting me know what does not have archival value so that I can confidently discard those papers. Once the papers, etc, are sorted and classified, they would need to be entered into a computer program.
