Do you have family photos that show Pasadena’s past? Would you like your family to be part of a larger history of Pasadena and share them with researchers and people specifically interested in our community? PDHC is looking for family photos of Pasadena to add to our digital collection of online historical images. Bring in your photos, and students from PCC’s Digitization Skills Certificate Program will scan them on the spot and add them to the database. Participants will receive a cd with copies of their images.

Reservations: None required. However, it is recommended that prior to the event, patrons fill out the metadata form for each photograph they plan to have scanned.
