Preserving Your Memories on Digital Video with Dan Pickering
Old photos, recordings, and home videos are a treasure chest of stories and memories. But often they are scattered about in various boxes, drawers, and albums. And, in so many formats: prints, slides, vinyl records, audio tapes, memorabilia, 8mm movies, videotape, and now---digital media. This presentation will explore options for organizing, preserving, & creating a digital legacy that can be shared with friends and loved ones, now and in the future. Dan taught computer education, broadcasting, and video projects in the Michigan public schools for 31 years and continues his hobby/part-time occupation of video production at home in Hancock. He moved here with his wife, Sandra, in 2005 and they enjoy a quiet New England lifestyle of gardening, hiking, canoeing, and observing local wildlife near Willard Pond.
