How to Digitize and Scan Historical Documents, April 11, in Dennysville

Have you ever wanted to learn how to digitize and scan historical documents, but were not sure how to go about it?   This is the subject of workshop being offered at the Lincoln Memorial Public Library in Dennysville on Wednesday, April 11 from 10 a.m. to twelve noon.  Al Churchill, Esq., will be demonstrating how he has preserved thousands of documents and images for the St. Croix Historical Society using a simple flatbed scanner and portable computer.   In addition to preserving a digital copy, using simple Adobe applications, older texts have been rendered legible and searchable.  “The process is relatively simple,” says Churchill, “it is largely a matter of getting used to it.”  While the seminar is designed for local historical societies and archivists, the public is welcome to participate, space permitting. 

The workshop is free, but participants are asked to register by Friday, April 6th, by contacting Colin Windhorst at, or calling 726-3905 with any questions
