Family Archive Workshop

Wednesday, April 22 at 7:00 p.m.

Do you know where your family history is? If you are like many busy people, the answer lives in unorganized boxes and computer files. Bring in one or two boxes of your family history; photos, letters, tapes, textiles and digital files, and learn how to do basic preservation and organization of your precious family memories and history with Elizabeth Morris, the Library’s Digital Librarian & Archivist. Be a hero in saving memories for future generations. Registration is not required to attend, but space is limited and participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
