smflameAt the Dallas Jewish Historical Society, we take great pride in our events. With events like powerful and historic movies, a historical reflection on the past shown in creative ways, and bringing the cultural history of different people together, the society aims to provide a hands-on approach and build a sense of transparency, enlightenment and excitement in the community.

Take part in one of our events today, so that you can see and feel the true impact they can have on you!

Q: What do I do with all these photos and documents?

A: Bring them to a DJHS Scanning Day, of course!

Sunday, December 10, 2017

12:00pm – 3:00pm

Let DALLAS JEWISH HISTORICAL SOCIETY help you preserve & easily share your family photos by participating in DJHS SCANNING DAYS! We will create high-quality scans of your letter-size (or smaller) documents and up to 8” x 10” photographs. We can digitally reproduce larger photos, documents, and artwork with advance notice.

A good rule of thumb is 30 – 40 pictures and/or documents — we will sit with you to get descriptions of the photos and the people in them; and you will receive a CD with your pictures within 2 weeks of your initial Scanning Day appointment.

YOU MUST REGISTER by phone, email or online to avoid cancellation of the event due to low registration.

Please join the Dallas Jewish Historical Society (DJHS) and the Dallas Genealogical Society – Jewish Special Interest Group (DGS-JSIG) for our quarterly series of Genealogy workshops. Each workshop will feature a speaker on some aspect of genealogical research, followed by opportunities to work in small groups on your specific needs. All levels are welcome, from “just thinking about it” to “I’ve reached a brick wall and need help moving on.”
