"Digital Archiving for Genealogists", presented by Mark Middleton  (GSWC Meetings - Programs)
1:30 pm
Education Center Auditorium, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Campus, 5305 Elliott Dr., Ypsilanti, Michigan
What happens when a Genealogist has a fire or flood in their home? What if a genealogist comes across a great collection of photos, but the "owning" relative doesn’t want them to leave their possession? There are many reasons why genealogists need to create and work with digital files. This presentation covers the complete spectrum of capturing media from photos, books, home movies and audio recordings, creating computer files from the captured digital material, and archiving those files. Standards and equipment recommendations are covered. Emphasis will be placed on the best process to use to be successful.
