Preserving Your Family Archives

Posted on: Feb 11 2022 by admin

Thursday, February 17, 2022 at 7pm. This is an Online Program.

Join Dave Nichols, Rice County Historical Society Curator, to learn how to preserve your family archives on Thursday, February 17, at 7pm

Due to COVID concerns, this program will be held online at https://meet.google.com/gng-swif-dwk

This program will focus on preserving your family history, both digital and physical. Nichols will touch on the best materials to use to keep your photographs and documents safe, as well as ways to properly store digitally scanned photographs and documents. Additionally, he will provide background on the kind of information most people forget to include for future generations, and how to capture your family history in a digital format.

He has worked for Steele County and Goodhue County Historical Societies before becoming the Curator at Scott County Historical Society in 2018. He has worked in the University Archives at MSU and has been an advocate for digital collections. He joined the Rice County Historical Society as its Curator/Assistant to the Executive Director in March 2020.
