Upcoming Event : Dating Old Photographs, March 28

Paula Metzner, Assistant Director of Collections for the Kalamazoo Valley Museum will present "Dating Old Photographs" at the next meeting hosted by the Van Buren Regional Genealogical Society (VBRGS), Monday, March 28, 7 p.m. at the Webster Memorial Library, Decatur.

The program will examine a collection of photographs and dissect the elements that help to date them and place them in their time in history.  Ms. Metzger will also share ideas & techniques that will help us preserve our precious family photos for future generations.

Also that evening at 6 p.m., VBRGS will sponsor a Family History Essentials mini-class.

Members and visitors alike are invited to enjoy an evening of useful information, sharing opportunities, and refreshments.  Plan to come early and spend some time in the Local History Department where you can access Ancestry Library Edition, American Ancestors.org and the regional research collection.  For more information about this or any VBRGS event, contact program chairman, Joyce Beedie.
