“From a Box in the Closet to a Treasured Family Heirloom:  Organizing and Digitizing your Family Photos” 

Have you been thinking about digitizing your family photos, but don’t know where to begin?  Join us as genealogist Sara Cochran guides us through the steps of a successful digitization project.  After a brief history of photography, she will review photo identification and organizing techniques, digitization basics and services, and ideas for creating family heirlooms and gifts.

About the speaker:  Sara Cochran holds a degree in Library Science/Liberal Arts and a Certificate of Genealogical Research from Boston University, and is a graduate of the Professional Genealogy Study Group certificate program.  After nearly 25 years researching her own family tree, which has roots in Britain, Ireland, Italy, and Austria, as well as most of the United States, she began helping others learn about their own family history and preserve their photographic legacy. The presentation will begin after a short business meeting at 10 a.m. and concludes at noon.

Visitors are invited to this free program on Saturday, February 16th, which includes refreshments.  The society meets at 27976 Marguerite Parkway at Hillcrest Drive.  Park and enter behind the LDS church (not affiliated).  For more information, contact silkberry@aol.com.

The SOCCGS Genealogy Research Center located at the Mission Viejo Library is open seven days a week with docents available to help you.  Visit www.soccgs.org for hours.
