As part of volunteer effort to protect and present the history of Beachwood, Beachwood History.com offers free professional digitizing services for personal collections – photos, paperwork, publications, postcards, physical objects, etc – through our flatbed scanner workstation and DSLR camera equipment. Any items lent will be returned in person or via mail (depending upon distance and preference) along with digital copies burned to DVD-ROM or uploaded to an external hard drive.
Family photos, postcards, deeds, letters, newsletters, yearbooks, newspapers, old signs, home blueprints, from throughout the 20th century welcome (the 1940s to 1990s are currently very underrepresented and so needed).
Help keep Beachwood history alive, preserved and within public awareness. Items digitized will be utilized in future online posts, digital and print publications and more along with protective watermark to prevent theft or unauthorized use.
All digitized collections will be secured to archival film with copies donated to state and federal archives in the future for security and availability in the coming decades and centuries.
Write BeachwoodHistory@gmail.com for more information or to request this free digitizing service.
