You are Cordially Invited: "A Guide for Going Home"

Just as families everywhere drag carry-ons through airport terminals and merge onto construction-plagued highways to visit grandma's independent living condo, the Southern California Genealogical Society and website 1000memories.com have joined forces to help preserve and share your cherished memories - forever.

On November 20, 2011, from 11am to 2pm, SCGS and 1000memories.com will hold "A Guide for Going Home," an event to provide scanning of treasured family photos, videos, stories, letters and cards. The event is free and open to the public.

As SCGS president Heidi Ziegler noted, "This could be a great event for you and your family. In particular, it is a perfect opportunity to digitize old photos before Thanksgiving so that you can share them with family over the holidays."

The event will include free scanning, a "show & tell" of great old photographs, a short class on vintage photography, and instruction on using the 1000memories.com website and mobile app.

Bring a shoebox of your old photos and join us!

If you have any questions about the types of materials that can be scanned, please contact scgs@1000memories.com.

Thank you for your continued support of the programs and activities of the Southern California Genealogical Society. We look forward to seeing you on November 20th!

P.S. - If you are not in the Southern California area and would like information on digitizing your vintage photos or would like to sponsor a similar event in your area, please contact scgs@1000memories.com
