Genealogy in Delaware County: Scanning Your Family Treasures

Saturday, October 15 @ 10am


DCHA Archivist Ray LaFever will conduct a genealogy workshop about saving and sharing family history through digital imaging. Digital imaging has made it possible to share family photos, letters and other documents with everyone in your family.

Ray will talk about the kinds of items to scan and the challenges related to scanning various media, including slides, negatives, and tintypes, as well as small diaries and letters in faint pencil. The presentation will discuss the standards for imaging. If done right, you should only have to scan an item once.

As well as an experienced amateur genealogist, Ray has been a professional archivist since graduating from SUNY Albany in 1985. After spending five years working for local governments in Albany and Dutchess counties, he spent 20 years working for the New York State Archives, providing advisory services on archives and records management to local governments and local historical societies.


Registration required by October 12Cost: $10 per person. Call 607-746-3849 or e-mail to register.
