Work continues on the Aroet book. Those participating have been pulled in several directions, but we are making progress slowly. Sketches of Aroet’s wives are complete and ready for editing. Aroet’s extensive journals have been transcribed and research has been done, and continues, on the history of the places and events he was a part of. A master time line has been created and artifacts continue to come in related to Aroet. At the Temple gathering in February 2012 Lee showed the family a book of Aroet’s poetry that had recently been given to him by a relative.
This has been a laborious project, and we still have details to finish. We could use more help as we wrap up the Aroet book project. Specifically, if you are interested in writing a short history on each of Aroet’s children (or a few of them), we would appreciate the help. We can provide you with the data the committee has already gathered and give suggestions about where you might do more research to fill in the blanks. We have an editor so you don’t need to worry about verbiage and syntax–we just need people to sift through information and create concise summaries. This project can be done in small chunks, and every bit of help is welcome! Use the “Tell Us Your News” link and I will get you in touch with the committee.
