“Picturing” Your Research—Finding, Procuring, and Preserving Images
Saturday, 7 April @ The David Library of the American Revolution, 10am
Michelle D. Novak, Trustee, Genealogical Society of New Jersey (GSNJ) and The Genealogical Society of Bergen County, NJ (GSBC)

GSBC and GSNJ Trustee Michelle Novak will be giving two talks—one in February (at the New Jersey State Library) and in March (at the meeting of the Bucks County Genealogical Society). These talks are related but independent topics on organizing and preserving your research and family photos for future generations. Both talks were delivered at the 2017 National Genealogical Society Family History Conference in Raleigh, NC.

"'Picturing' Your Research" will take place at the meeting of the Bucks County Genealogical Society held at the David Library the American Revolution. (Please visit the website for more information.

“Picturing” Your Research

Your research can come alive with images but working with images can be a daunting prospect for many researchers. In this talk, we’ll look at all three—from the view of a researcher, designer, and photographer, Michelle D. Novak.

She will show us how to best scan the images you have, ways to find images in collections to supplement your research, new online resources to help identify those mystery people and places, and share some tips for protecting the photos and artifacts for future generations. Whether you have 5,000 family photos or just five, you won't want to miss this talk! 

(FYI, this is her favorite talk!)

Michelle D. Novak is President of [MND] (, a NYC Brand-Design agency and a graduate of RISD and BU Genealogical Research. She is a Trustee of The Genealogical Society of New Jersey; the Genealogical Society of Bergen County, NJ; and is Editor of the GSBC’s national award-winning newsletter, "The Archivist."

Hosted by the Bucks County (PA) Genealogical Society. Tickets (available at the door) are $5 for BucksGen members; $10 for non-members.
