Unleash Your Photo Shoebox
Aug.08.2012 07.30PM


Pasadena Digital History Collaborative (PDHC) has spent the past two years embarking on the mammoth project of digitizing the photo archives of the Pasadena Public Library, Pasadena Museum of History, Pasadena City College, and the Huntington Library then sharing them with the public. Now they are expanding their efforts into the community.

Do you have a shoebox filled with family photos which show Pasadena's past? Would you like your family to be a part of a larger history of Pasadena and share them with researchers and people specifically interested in our community? PDHC is looking for family photos of Pasadena to add to their digital collection of online historical images.

Pasadena Public Library's Local History Librarian Dan McLaughlin will present a series of talks on how you can add your photos to this collection. The first is scheduled on Wednesday August 8 at 7:30 p.m. in Pasadena Central Library's Donald R. Wright Auditorium, 285 E. Walnut St. McLaughlin will present examples of current "shoebox collections", and highlight the strengths of these photos as part of the PDHC online collection. He will also suggest resources that people can use to research their own family photos. Registration is desired, but not required.
