Debra Allen of the Oswego History Records Center scans documents from New Haven as part of a project to digitize the 1976 Heritage Foundation Architectural Survey of Oswego County Buildings. The project is funded through a grant from the Richard S. Shineman Foundation.

OSWEGO – Come out for “History on Tap” to learn more about the not-for-profit Oswego History Records Center (OHRC). The illustrated program will cover the OHRC’s mission and personnel as well as some of its past, current and future projects. The event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 3 at G. S. Steamer’s Restaurant in the Clarion Inn, 70 E. First St., Oswego.

OHRC secretary Mary Kay Stone and member Debra Allen will discuss some of the local historical records, maps, surveys, photographs and documents that are being photocopied, scanned and digitized by the OHRC so that they may be made available to the public for research, inspection and copying.

The OHRC is working in partnership with the Heritage Foundation of Oswego and is using their headquarters on East Second Street in Oswego as its operating base.
