Accessing and preserving valuable resources digitally

A host of family information is stored in valuable photos, books, newspapers, records, and more that are at risk of being lost. Efforts to preserve and digitally store these resources can save family histories for future generations.

Access and Preservation Day at RootsTech 2018 was a great opportunity to hear from some industry leaders who are taking important steps in preserving valuable information. Read from the highlights below to learn how certain organizations and libraries, such as the Internet Archive and the Allen County Public Library, are working to do just that. Find out how you can participate as well as access the irreplaceable digital archives they’ve preserved in the name of genealogy.

As Curt Witcher said, “As librarians and archivists, we are curating the stories of our lives.”
