Care and Identification of Family Photographs
Saturday, March 23, 2013
9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Old family photographs are among the first items people rescue in times of catastrophe, yet many of us do little to ensure their long-term preservation. Presented by Joan Hostetler of Heritage Photo and Research Services, this three-hour, hands-on workshop will discuss dating and identifying photos based on process and format, finding dating clues within old images, ideal storage environments (cold, dry, and dark), archival enclosures and albums, properly marking photographs, sharing images via online sites, and preservation of digital photographs. Participants are encouraged to bring mystery or interesting photographs for a brief show-and-tell session. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required at http://careofphotos-eorg.eventbrite.com/. This program has been made possible through a matching grant from Indiana Humanities in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Humanities, sponsored in part by the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau. This program will be held in the Program Room.
