  • 2020-07-08

  • Via ZOOM. Non-members of DACGS must request instructions to view the meeting by sending an email by Monday, July 6th to: dacgslc@gmail.com

Preserving Your Family Memories

DACGS member, Doug Wilke, will share with attendees how to scan your old family photos and documents like a pro.  The basics of using a flatbed scanner — pixels, resolution, aspect ratio, and file types will also be covered.  And for your “on-the-go” needs, Doug will show us how to use a great scanning app for your smartphone or tablet.  We should mention that the app is FREE.  As a genealogist, you will be better prepared to fill in the “dash,” that story between birth and death of our ancestors.

The July meeting of the Doña Ana County Genealogical Society will be conducted online remotely using the ZOOM application.

Without the ability to safely meet in person due to the Covid-19 situation, the July 8th DACGS meeting will be conducted digitally (over the internet) so we may safely observe from home.  Members will receive an invitation to join the meeting by email.

If you are not a DACGS member and would like to participate, please send an email no later than Monday, July 6, 2020, to:  dacgslc@gmail.com   with your request to attend the digital meeting.  Attendance is limited to 300.

The meeting will begin at 2:00 pm on Wednesday, July 8, 2020.


Doug will refer to metadata during his presentation.  More information about metadata may be found by clicking   here.  These two pages are the notes from a presentation done by Allison Taylor at RootsTech 2017.  The video of her presentation can be seen by clicking   here.   It is very informative and easy to follow along.
