May Digitization Round-up
Every month there are many announcements of new counties digitizing their records, or invitations for you to bring your own photos and records in and get them digitized locally.
Each of these projects are started by just one person, or a small group of people, who want to make a difference. What can you do to make a difference? (No doubt each of these projects could use a few more volunteers….)
Organizations digitizing their records
- Landmarks Committee, middle schoolers work to digitize Randolph’s rich history (And with middle schoolers? How cool is that?)
Bring your records in for digitizing
- Bring your photos and documents into a local family history center (FamilySearch) to get them digitized. New copier/printers have been installed at family history centers all over North America (and soon to FHCs internationally too). Anyone can come in and scan their photos and documents, and they will even upload automatically to your FamilySearch account.
- The Texas Film Round-Up provides free digitization for Texas-related films. The program is open to home movies, advertisements, local television, and community films. They will be in Amarillo June 19-21.
- Nacodoches–two projects (one from the Texas Film Round-Up already completed, and one ongoing) help you digitize your history in east Texas
