Making Memories Project Launch

Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies will be holding an official launch of Making Memories, a community archives project, on Wednesday 13 January 2010.
The launch is open to everyone and will provide an opportunity to look at the new website, Herts Memories, and find out how to add pictures and memories to it. Volunteers from the project will be on hand to demonstrate the website and talk about their experiences as editors and website developers. You can also find out about other similar projects around the county. Free training is available for anybody who would like to be involved in the project.

There will also be documents and photographs on display from the archives and library collections. Perhaps you will see something there that jogs a memory for you.
