Preserving Your Family’s Digital Legacy – Program Links


So many of our family photographs, videos, and papers exist only on our computers. How vulnerable are they to loss and deterioration?

The Winchester Historical Society wishes to thank Helen Bailey for sharing her extensive knowledge and expertise so freely with our community.
