Seattle, Washington: KAHS is proud to announce that it will host two free events whereby residents can bring documents and photographs to be digitized.
The digitization events will take place on
- September 8, 2018 from 10am to 4pm at the Federal Way Korean American Association (1500 S 336th St, Federal Way, WA 98003-6312)
- September 29, 2018 from 10am to 4pm at the United Presbyterian Church of Seattle (8506 238th St SW, Edmonds, WA 98026-8939)
Participants will receive protective storage sleeves to ensure the longevity of their materials, as well as a USB drive of the images for free. The digitized images will contribute to a curricula of Korean American history in Washington State and be retained in our collection at The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience for future research.
Examples include, but are not limited to,
- Documents that capture what life was like or add a personal side to one’s life;
- Photos of people at work or play; or at social events; alone or with friends and families;
- Immigration documents, marriage or birth certificates, business licenses, letters, diaries, school or military records;
- Artifacts from Korea – a name stamp (dojang); a toy; household items; mementos.
