Monthly General Membership Meeting
Thursday, May 13
Monthly General Membership Meeting  (General Membership Meeting)
7:00 pm
Online meeting via Zoom
Maggie Cogswell from the Washington State Archives will share her adventures completing the massive, 11-year project of digitizing and cataloging photos of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC was a huge work-relief program for Americans coming out of the Depression and the collection of 2,396 photographs shows some of the work conducted on Washington state parks from 1933 to 1938. We'll learn about what goes into a huge digitizing project like this, how technology may affect future projects and when we might expect other collections to appear online. You'll also learn a little bit about the work of the CCC and it may give you clues to how your ancestors may have been involved all over the country.
