Speaking on behalf of genealogists, historical interest can be very 
important. One can trace various things like residency, asset transfer 
relationships, etc. I have found some relatives through triangulating 
land patents and transfers from the late 1700s. I'm sure the future will 
have similar needs.

That is all.
