FIRST FRIDAYS: Family Digitization Days In conjunction with the launch of the Cemetery’s online Memorial Pages, we are pleased to offer an exciting new program to digitize photographs and memorabilia relating to individuals buried and commemorated at Mount Auburn. Mount Auburn’s free FIRST FRIDAYS: Family Digitization Days program will be held on the first Friday morning of every month, between 10 AM and 12 PM. During each 30-minute session, Mount Auburn staff will scan or take photographs of memorabilia that help tell the story of your loved ones. Your original materials will be returned to you and you will be given a flash drive with the new digital files, which you will then be able to upload to the Cemetery’s online Memorial Pages. What can be digitized? Please bring 2-dimensional memorabilia such as portraits or family photographs, scrapbook pages, awards, letters, and other items under 11 x 17 inches to be scanned. Small 3-dimensional objects will be photographed. How many items can I digitize? During each 1/2 hour session we have time to digitize or photograph 3-5 items. You are welcome to make additional appointments if you have other materials. How do I sign up? Each 30-minute session is by appointment only. Register for an upcoming session by calling 617-607-1980 or register online at: www.mountauburn.org/FirstFridays
