Our Experts

It is impossible for any one person to know everything about everything. We are so greatful to our team of ‘experts’ who donate their time, knowledge and expertise to help us research and document information in the stories behind the items that are donated.
Following is a list of individuals (and their companies) who help us and their areas of expertise. If you have some expertise related to a particular category of items and would be willing to help us research and document items in that category, we would love to hear from you. Send us an email or give us a call. There are lots of stories that could be lost without your help. Come join the fun and share a story.
