May 2014

May 1, 7:30 p.m. ~ Town & Gown, "Defiance City History in the DC Archives" Presented by Barbara Sedlock, Schomburg Auditorium, Defiance College Campus

The Defiance College Memory website (memory.defiance.edu) is not just for DC history. It contains some surprising Defiance city history resources, all available for free on the internet. Barb Sedlock, Metadata and Archives Librarian, will show the audience what some of these resources are and explain how to find them. Genealogists will learn how to find yearbooks and commencement programs listing alumni ancestors, architecture buffs can view a gallery of Ohio courthouse paintings, and long time residents can reminisce about what Defiance's downtown used to look like in Homecoming parade photos. View Nellie Gary's 1920's scrapbook, learn what the Chautauqua was like on Island Park in the early 1900's, and see past Fort Defiance Players' programs. If time permits, Barb will also demonstrate how to search for other libraries' collections of digitized images and documents from around the world.
