Sparkle

We have been encouraging residents and others to share photos, family trees and stories with us. This has resulted in some very interesting results.

I have been scanning photos this week. Some are very small (under 2 inches) but scanning at high resolutions allows enlargements and some wonderful discoveries that were not noticed in the original photo. A face of a resident long since departed is brought up with clarity – it’s such a wonderful way to keep their memory alive.
These photos inevitably add detail and, dare I say, ‘sparkle’ to the stories of the Cut Knife Community.

It is these discoveries that help motivate me to continue with the establishment and growth of our archives.

I  still have much to learn about digital storage practices to ensure this modern storage lasts for the next generations.
