Rescuing Photos from Dying Digital Platforms: How to Save

If you have a question about this event, Please contact us


From: 4/23/2019 06:30 PM

To: 4/23/2019 07:30 PM

With the news that Google+ is shutting down, people are scrambling to make sure they have saved their content. This seems to happen every time a digital platform shuts down and their users need to recover their photos. As genealogists, we interact with our families using digital platforms to share family photos and information. Let’s explore how to save digital platform content that you and family members have put online. We will be focusing on Facebook with additional tips for Twitter, Instagram, and websites. Macs, PCs, IPhones, and Androids will be used for this presentation.

Presenters: Emily Rapoza and Allison DePrey Singleton
