Association of Newfoundland and Labrador Archives and Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador present a 1/2-day workshop:

Nan’s Cookbook in the Digital Age: digitizing and preserving family heirloom cookbooks and recipe cards

Date: February 21, 2014, 1-4:30 p.m.

Presenters: Dale Jarvis, Intangible Cultural Heritage Development Officer, Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador
Nicole Penney, Intangible Cultural Heritage Programs Assistant

Do you have your nan’s recipe cards? Did your mother keep a scrapbook of her favorites? Do family members reminisce about that old copy of the Cream of the West Cookbook with the comments and changes written all over its pages?

This workshop will teach participants how to create and preserve digital copies of these important family and community heirlooms. We’ll also talk about how best to preserve the original documents! Participants will be encouraged to bring examples from their own homes or collections.

Registration fee: $30
Registration deadline: February 17, 2014
Some financial assistance for transportation costs is available for ANLA members: please contact the ANLA office for more information.
