October 2017 Meeting – Preserving Digital Memories

Posted by hrgenealogy on September 19, 2017

Recovering old photos can be particularly rewarding because it allows us to put faces to the names, and helps us to visualize the world as it once was. To find out how to do this, join the Highlands Ranch Genealogical Society at the Highlands Ranch Library, 7 p.m., Tuesday, October 3 for a presentation by Ed Campbell and Penny Mannel of “A Page is Turned,” on how to restore old photos and more.

There are many ways to utilize images from the past to help bring the stories they illustrate to life. The folks at “A Page Is Turned” are experts in digitizing and restoring many forms of media, from old photos and film to modern video and audio formats. Bringing these precious memories into the digital world allows for a variety of options to help tell the stories that we want to share with family and friends. During their presentation, Ed and Penny will discuss many of the methods that can be utilized to help bring the past to life.

Ed Campbell & Penny Mannel at “A Page Is Turned” have been in the business of helping folks preserve their precious memories for more than ten years. They recognize the importance of the personal nature of their work, and make every effort to meet or exceed their client’s expectations in all aspects of the work they do. Ed has been interested in digital image manipulation since he acquired his first computer in 1983. He has been working with Adobe Photoshop® since 1991, in both personal and professional capacities, and is well-regarded in the field of digital photo restoration.

Show up at 6:30 p.m. for snacks and discussions for fellow genealogists. You never know who might have the solution to your hardest “brick wall.”

See you there!

The Highlands Ranch Genealogical Society and Highlands Ranch Library second annual Genealogy Fair on Saturday, March 1 was a great success, with over thirty people braving the weather to attend.  The displays of library genealogy books and research contributed by our members were very well received, as were the tables of our vendors. Many thanks to Albion Design Centre, DiggiDeena Consulting, A Page is Turned, Creative Family Tree, Tattered Cover Press, and Legacy Family Tree for showing us what they do. If you did not have the opportunity to attend, check out their websites for details about their services.

Also, thanks to our workshop presenters: Barbara Fines Price for her session on Genealogy 101 and Deena Coutant’s Family Tree Genealogy software presentation. Both seminars were well attended.

This is a year’s fair gave both those new to genealogy to learn how to get started and those “old hands” among us to pick up new tricks.
