Photo Organizing: Ideas on How (and Where) to Get Started
• Enhancing your Archive
• Organizing – Physical or Digital?
• Storing – Physical or Digital?
• Syncing photos on your Phone
Meet a professional organizer who will conduct an interactive session on how to tackle our shoe boxes of family photos and historic papers! David maintains that most people shouldn't scan first (or even at all) for a variety of reasons. It’s a fun program and very DIY oriented, followed by a Q and A session - so bring your burning issues along for individual help!
Tips from David's website:
"We have the ability to capture stories and memories like never before.
As you gather with family and friends, consider how to build videos into your Archive. Interview your grandparents (if you still have the chance) or better yet, have the grandparents interview the kids! Those video clips will be precious to future generations who will be able to know you in a way we cannot know previous generations."
