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?
We received answers from an expert at the Society’s April 10th program. Helen Bailey, MIT Library Fellow for Digital Curation & Preservation, guided us through the challenges of managing the increasing number of digital files in our family archives.

Her handout, with links to websites with more information, can be found at:
The Winchester Historical Society wishes to thank Helen Bailey for sharing her extensive knowledge and expertise so freely with our community.
