Saturday, November 10, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Location: The RIHS Library
121 Hope St., Providence, RI 02906

On the Library's monthly open Saturday, volunteers from the Rhode Island Genealogical Society will be on hand again to assist patrons working on family history. We thank the volunteers from RIGS for offering their services!

   Microfilm Scanner Demonstration: But can it make coffee?

From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the same Saturday you can see a special demonstration of the latest microfilm technology, which we hope to be able to make available at the Library with a little help from our friends.

AMS Imaging will show us all the bells and whistles on the ScanPro 2000, which allows users to word-search microfilm, scan images directly to a handheld device, and adjust images to improve the quality. If you use our newspapers, town records, censuses and manuscript materials on microfilm you have to see this machine to believe it!
