OGS Webinar: Camera scanning your photographic archive


On the first Thursday of every month, the Ontario Genealogical Society hosts an education webinar.  This month, Peter Krogh will be presenting a webinar entitled ‘Camera scanning your photographic archive’.   The presentation will begin at 7pm EST on June 7 and registration is required.

Webinar Summary: “The need to digitize photo collections is shared by families and companies alike. This is essential to both preserving history, and sharing it with others. Peter will share his reasons why using your own digital camera is the fastest, easiest and most economical way to achieve a digital archive. Professional photography skills are a plus, but by following the recipe approach, Peter makes such experience not necessary by any means”.

Don’t miss out on this great opportunity:   REGISTER HERE for Thursday’s webinar
