Rescuing and Digitally Preserving the Cultural Heritage of the Great Smoky Mountains | The Signal: Digital Preservation

Rescuing and Digitally Preserving the Cultural Heritage of the Great Smoky Mountains | The Signal: Digital Preservation

This Library of Congress Post reminds us that each and everyone of us can preserve our own family's cultural heritage.  Learn the art of scanning photos, heirlooms and practice "journaled" scrapbooking.  Write your memoirs and encourage your family to do likewise.

In a day when what others do seems to be more important (celebrity watching, poring over the latest "Pins" at Pinterest, etc., let us not to forget that each of us has something unique to share.  But to share it we have to create our own personal history, first.  Maybe not a comprehensive project, but steadily in a family newsletter or whatever.
