MGC’s Archival Collections…Now with Digital Access!
May 06, 2014
The Midwest Genealogy Center has exciting news to share! We have begun to add digital archival collections to our website. Digital archival collections will help provide wider access to genealogists, especially those who don’t live close to MGC. These collections will be online and accessible through any browser. If you find images that you want, they can be downloaded to a computer and saved. Items such as letters, record books, photographs, and more will be easier to read and use during research.
Take a look through MGC’s first digital archival collection, the Thomas Family Record Book. Maybe you will find an ancestor--who knows? MGC will be continually adding more collections to the Archival Collections page, so keep an eye out for upcoming digital collections!
Interested in helping MGC digitize archival materials? Requirements for this volunteer position are intermediate computer skills, the ability to operate the camera equipment, and will involve a combination of standing and sitting. We need people to work during the week, Monday through Friday, during the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Applying to MGC’s volunteer program is easy! Fill out MGC’s volunteer application and return to MGC.
