Archivist Nancy Loe to Speak at Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society

Nancy Loe will present "Picture This: Cataloging Digital Family Photographs" at the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society’s monthly meeting, Saturday, Sept. 17 at the First Presbyterian Church, 21 E. Constance at State Street, 9:30 a.m. to noon. 

Family photographs may seem so complex that they defy organizing. Tame your digital family photographs by learning how to add names, dates, and other information to images to make them searchable.

The session covers a simple and effective process, from scanning and adding information for retrieval, to filing and backing up your family photographs, so you can do it once and do it right.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
