Part of our charter as custodians of historical artifacts and sites is to document them and to provide access to that documentation. The Digitization Project was created to document artifacts in an image and historical content database, and to create Internet access to this database.
Historical photographs, or photographs of artifacts or sites are digitally scanned into a computer file and entered into a database along with any related historical documentation. The scanning, images touch-up, and documentation is performed by the project staff and volunteers.
If you can photocopy a letter, you can scan a photograph! We literally have thousands of artifact photographs to scan, with more donated every year. We need your help to digitize and document them all.
