In Spring 2020, the Special Collections Department will begin a new community digitization project, and we need your help!
The project, “Huntsville in Retrospect,” focuses on scanning and photographing family records and other items of historical value. However, instead of you coming to us, we are going to you. We plan to schedule six locations around Madison County – at community centers, churches, libraries, and anywhere else we can find – where you can bring in personal family records for us to digitally copy for the archive. The best part? You get to keep your family records!
The first scanning day will be held at the Historic Huntsville Depot on March 3 and 4, 2020.
