Digitizing and Preserving Historical Documents

Digitizing and Preserving Historical Documents

Digitizing is the evolutionary method of preserving books, photographs or documents.  Some documents are digitized because of their intrinsic value, while others are digitized for their extrinsic value.  In the area of genealogy, it is not unusual for an individual, church, library, or other organization to store documents that may have little market value, but possess great value for family history research.  See how FamilySearch.org, the world's largest collector and disseminator of genealogical records is making headway in the field of digitalization and the process for preserving historical records. 

For more information or if you have a special physical or communication need, please contact ask@pamunkeylibrary.org or call the Ashland Branch Library at 804-798-4072.
