Sacramento: Converting old slides to CD, Aug. 17

"Converting 35mm slides to electronic format" will be presented by Ron Young at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento on Monday, August 17.

The event starts at 7pm, at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento.

Young, a member of the Nevada County Genealogical Society, specializes in computer application to genealogy projects and has written many columns for local genealogy newsletters.

He will present four different methods to convert old slides and display them without the use of a projector. He will cover how color shift in old slides can be corrected. On one CD, 400-600 slides can be stored. It can be played on your TV or computer, and you can easily make copies for other family members.
