The LaGrange County Historical Society will meet at 6:30pm on Tuesday September 11 at the LaGrange County Library Community Room.
This meeting is a combined meeting with the LaGrange County Genealogy Society. The speaker for the meeting will be Rita Lehner, who will discuss the new scanner purchased by the county and what plans she has for it. Lehner will talk about her plans to scan old records into a digital format, which can eventually be converted into microfilm with the same equipment. Lehner will also talk about scanning records in the courthouse attic, sorting, preserving, retention and long-term scanning, as well as determining what can be made public and sharing this information.
