In Fall 2018, I assisted the Manitowoc County Historical Society with its creation of their first digital archive. The archive contains over 3,000 photos taken by a local photographer, Dayrl Cornik. The photos are from the 1930’s-1980’s and include many buildings, events, and activities from Manitowoc County during that time.
My role in the creation of this archive was to go through the photos. I checked to make sure that they all had dates and locations along with the correct information for the photographer. I also uploaded the photos which went along with the information. All of this work on the archive was done in Past Perfect before it was uploaded to the website.
The digital archive is set to be revealed at the historical society’s annual member and awards banquet in 2019. Below is a link to the Manitowoc County Historical Society’s digital archive.
