What if I have concerns about the private events and feelings recorded in the diaries I am interested in donating?

   The Personal Nature of Diaries

   We deeply appreciate your concerns about privacy. Your diarist may have recorded events and feelings that he or she never imagined would one
   day appear on the Internet. With the passage of time, however, the activities of diarists, their tales and opinions lose their ability to have a
   personal impact on others. The people in the nineteenth-century diaries featured on this website have now passed away and bequeath to us
   sources of extraordinary power.
