Photo Retouching in Genealogical Research - Saturday, March 17, 2012

“Photo Retouching in Genealogical Research” will be the theme of the Saturday, March 17, 2012 meeting of the British Interest Group of Wisconsin & Illinois (BIGWILL) from 10:00 am until 12:00 noon at the Community Church, 5714 Broadway, Richmond, IL.

Presented by Larry L. Pepper, owner of Pepper Photography, which specializes in photographic restoration and archiving.

Using digital imaging software, Larry has carved out a niche as a specialist who digitally restores images that are faded, cracked, and heavily damaged, and then creates new photographs resembling the like-new condition of the old originals. Additionally, Larry provides advice regarding the safe storage of paper documents and photographs.

BIGWILL, a genealogical special interest group for those who wish to research family history and ancestry in the British Isles, meets at 10:00 am on the third Saturday of January, March, May, July, September and November at the Community Church, 5714 Broadway (2 blocks west of Hwy 12) in Richmond, IL.
