The backlog of unprocessed submissions to the Sprague Project remains large. Expect major delays in response to your submissions. 10/16/2014
Due to the ease that websites can be
datamined, scraped, etc., such as with the software aptly named SiteSucker,
recently championed in a popular genealogical newsletter, I have determined
that it is now necessary to close down this website each evening,
from about 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. (E.D.T.). I apologize
to one and all for having to do this. I cannot keep an eye at night
on those who intend to grab all that we have made available for free
since 1996. I am looking for software that will preclude massive downloads
and when I obtain it, things will return to what they were and this
website will once again be open 24 hours a day.

The Sprague Project search feature is disabled at night to prevent data mining. We apologize that we must do this.
