On Tuesday March 12th, 6:30pm, the first of three programs on Creating Family Memory Books, will take place in the Abbott Room of the Belfast Free Library. The series is presented by John Elberfeld and Jane McLean, husband-and-wife team with experience in archival techniques, genealogy, historical writing, desktop publishing, and creating memory books.

We’ll show examples of memory books, low-tech to high-tech.
The next session on Tuesday April 9th will focus on writing the captions and text and putting it all together. In part three, date still to be determined, participants will have the opportunity to use an online program to create their books.
