Branch meeting - January 25

This month we have not one but TWO excellent speakers. First we will have Matthew Moxley from the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum who will be showing us how to use the free online database of digitized Almonte Gazettes.

Next we will also have Kyla Ubbink, OGS Ottawa board member and conservator extraordinaire, who will be showing us how to use a free software called RetroReveal to uncover hidden text, see faded inks and photographs, and discover what may lie beneath.

When: Sat, January 25, 1pm – 3pm
Where: City of Ottawa Archives, Room 115 (map)
1:00-1:30: Networking - tea, coffee, cookies
