Coming Soon! April 22, 2019
“Preserve Your Family History” is the theme of the American Library Association’s Preservation Week, April 21-27.
To celebrate, PPLD is launching a new digitizing service to help convert and preserve your treasured family images, called Family Lineage Image Preservation (FLIP) Digital Services.
We will also be providing links to resources with guidelines on preserving all types of family collections.
During Preservation Week, on Tuesday, April 23rd, anyone interested in learning how to preserve their family history, may sign up to attend a free 1 hour webinar, offered by ALA, at 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm, by the author of The Family Tree Toolkit: A Comprehensive Guide to Uncovering Your Ancestry and Researching Genealogy and host of the PBS show Genealogy Roadshow, Kenyatta D. Berry.
