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.
activity on The Sprague Project has been stopped to attend to medical
needs. Submissions can still be made and will be preserved, but probably
will not be processed in the near future. 5/24/2014

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