That sounds great, Ron! Let us know how or if we can help. If there is 
an expense, I would be happy to chip in; I'm sure others would do the same.

FB is nothing but a stream of consciousness - it has little value as a 
research tool. Posts are quickly buried never to be seen again. The one 
advantage over 78-L is that you can upload files.

The best online forum format I've seen is this one


You can see and follow threads, post files and search the database. They 
also have a Music section for record collectors.
