Archives Awareness Week

Archives Awareness Week will be held from April the 2th until April the 4th.

This year, members of Durham Region Area Archives Group (DRAAG) are working together to host their first joint event.

On April 4th, they will be hosting the first Preserving Your Family History Event. Join us at the Northview Public Library, 150 Beatrice Street, East in Oshawa from 2 pm until 8 pm.

The website says that “Members of DRAAG institutions will be on hand to assist you with repairing and preserving precious documents and photographs from your collection.  Members will also be available to assist with digitizing items and providing the most up-to-date methods for digitally preserving your family archives.  The event will have several other information stations so check back here for further information in the coming weeks”

Residents are encouraged to bring along their family photos and documents.

Durham Region Area Archives Group (DRAG) was formed in June 2011, and is made up of archives, libraries, and galleries from across the region.
