Date: Saturday, January 25, 2014

Time 1:00 – 3:00 pm

Location: City of Ottawa Archives, 100 Tallwood Drive, Room 115, Ottawa (map)

  • 2:15-3:00: “RetroReveal for Genealogists, a Digital Forensics Tool” (Kyla Ubbink)

Using the Almonte Gazette online database Matthew Moxley of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum will be talking to us about the Almonte Gazette digitization project and showing us how to use the free ‘Almonte Gazette -Online!’ database. The Almonte Gazette has been an integral part of the town’s history and its contents can now be mined online for everything from council meetings to genealogical confirmation of births, deaths and marriages within the community and environs.

RetroReveal for Genealogists, a Digital Forensics Tool Kyla Ubbink (Professional Book and Paper Conservator) will show us how to use RetroReveal to uncover hidden text, see faded inks and photographs, and discover what may lie beneath, is as simple as taking a picture and uploading the image to this free online software. Getting the most out of it takes as little know-how and practice, but after a demonstration and a few handy pointers you will be hooked on this program and finding your own creative ways to reveal what was thought lost.

This meeting will be simulcast for members who can’t join us in person.
