TEMPORARY CHANGE IN HOURS: The website will be closed for a good part of Friday, July 24 and Saturday, August 1. For the days in between, the website will be closed each evening, from about 10:00 p.m. to 7:10 a.m. (E.D.T.).
backlog of unprocessed submissions to the Sprague Project remains large.
Expect major delays in response to your submissions. Please see
front page for details.
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 7:10 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.
The Sprague Mill, Upwey, England
The Sprague Project search feature is disabled at night to prevent data mining. We apologize that we must do this.
