Authentic documents allow readers to learn about the authors in their own words. We have access to many documents relating to the Batchellers and other significant people of Saratoga County. These are in the process of being transcribed so that they may be enjoyed by others. There is a copyright on these documents to prevent them from being published by others; however, anyone can download a copy and teachers are encouraged to use parts or all of them with their classes. We only ask that you drop us a note telling of their use and suggesting questions for other teachers.
