From The Acorn – News of the Ledyard Historical Society - The Ledyard Historical Society’s Archives Committee, which has been conducting occasional “catch and release” sessions for scanning historic photos, has decided to make them monthly events. From now on, committee members will be in the Janice W. Bell Research Room at the Ledyard Bill Library on the second Saturday of every month from 9:00 AM until noon. Members and Ledyard residents are encouraged to bring old family or community photos, which will be scanned and returned immediately. The digital images will be added to our extensive historic archive, and the owners of the photos will be able to have a digital version for their own use.
Committee members will also be working in the room on most Saturday and Thursday mornings, from 9:00 to 11:00 AM. If you’re in the library, stop in and see what they’re doing. That’s a good time to get help with your own research too.
