Preserving Family History - April 4 - Oshawa

Are you the unofficial family archivist?
Join the Durham Region Area Archives Group in celebrating Archives Awareness Week from April 2 to 6.
The group will be offering a 'Preserving Your Family History' event from 2 to 8 p.m. on April 4 at the Northview Branch of the Oshawa Public Library, 150 Beatrice St. E.
Professional archivists and local history librarians will be on hand to answer questions about genealogy, document and photograph preservation, digitization, and document repair.
There will also be digitization and encapsulation demonstrations and helpful tips on how best to store your family collection.
Residents are encouraged to bring along their family photos and documents.

This should be very interesting. I attended a similar day event at the Toronto Archives (a joint event by Toronto Archives and OGS Toronto Branch).

The staff was great and very knowledgable and I learned a great deal. I would urge anyone that can to attend the Durham Region Area Archives for this special event. You won't be sorry!
