Starting Weds., October 11 and continuing on every Wednesday through December 6, 2017, the SBHS photo archiving committee welcomes local residents to bring their personal historical photos and documents to the Sister Bay Library for scanning and recording into the Society’s archiving system. In many cases, photos will be scanned on the spot and immediately returned to the owner, but photos may also be donated outright to the SBHS. In either case, the photos’ owners can request a CD of scanned images so the donors can also preserve a digital record of these valuable heirlooms.
SBHS President Fred Johnson said the same type of photo-and-document-scanning project yielded thousands of Sister Bay-related images in 2012. “The reaction of local families back in 2012 was so positive and enthusiastic that we decided the time was right to do it all over again,” said Johnson. “Now that five or six years have passed, we’re certain many other families are encountering the same important legacy issue: what do they do with all of their family photos, which become harder and harder to identify with each passing year. Now is a good time to have us scan them, help with the identification of the people, businesses, and activities, and add to the public record of our local community. The photographic record of our Village’s past is an important relic that helps us understand where we’ve come from, and who we are.”
The SBHS photo committee welcomes all Sister Bay and Liberty Grove residents to bring personal photos and documents to the Sister Bay Library every Wednesday from 10 am–12 noon, starting October 11 through December 6, 2017. All types of photography — people, events, gatherings, groups, outings, and news — are welcome, as well as legal documents and other printed materials such as ads, although the committee is primarily interested in images and documents from the far past through approximately 1980.
