This Saturday, 25 April, the topic for the 1 pm meeting of the branch is "Don't Fade Away: digitization and preservation of family photographs" presented by Kyla Ubbink.
Digitization is a great way to facilitate creative use and sharing of photographs and documents, but with so many options out there for scanners, cameras and software it is hard to know what will suit your needs. In this workshop aimed at beginners Kyla Ubbink will discuss the different kinds of equipment and software available as well as the techniques required for carrying out digitization, organizing the resulting images, and some of the creative projects you can undertake to make the most out of your memories.It will be followed by a meeting of the Computer Special Interest Group.
The morning Back to Basics session, at 10:30 am is on Genetic Genealogy, to be given by Richard McGregor.
All events are at the City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive (Room 115)
