Care and Identification of Historic Family Photographs

September 16, 2010

If you have old family photos that you would like to preserve and pass on to your children or grandchildren, you?ll want to attend Joan Hostetler?s workshop, Care and Identification of Historic Family Photographs.? It will be held in the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana History Center?s Multipurpose Room on the canal level, from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Oct. 2.

Formerly employed by the Indiana Historical Society’s visual collections and exhibitions departments, Hostetler now owns Heritage Photo Services. She regularly consults with historical societies, museums, libraries and archives throughout Indiana and conducts classes, such as this one, for interested individuals.

Hostetler will teach attendees how to date, interpret and preserve their one-of-a-kind family photographs, from daguerreotypes of the 1840s to today?s digital photographs. She will cover the history of photography, give a hands-on identification of processes and formats, and discuss the best ways to preserve your images. Attendees are invited to bring problematic or interesting photographs for a show-and-tell session.

Hostetler received her master of fine arts in imaging arts and museum studies from the Rochester Institute of Technology and is a graduate of the George Eastman House Photographic Preservation and Archives Management Certificate Program. She specializes in photograph preservation and digital imaging.

The workshop is $15 or $12 for IHS members. Make your reservation soon. The class is limited to the first thirty people who register. Register onlineor call (317) 232-1882.


Teresa Baer is managing editor of Family History Publications at the IHS Press, which includes THG: Connections, Online Connections, ethnic and migration history, and childrenÕs and young adult books.
