We have been contacted by a young woman, which started genealogy. She was relatively lucky with her research. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our client and her grandparents had enough time to clean up their historic documents. They found hundreds of old black and white photos, with and without frames. Some have been ripped apart and some have been bleached out. Further, her grandparents found old birth-, marriage- and death certificates, that wasn’t in the best stage anymore as well. She called us to discuss if, we could help, and we certainly could.
We offered her, to save her memories for the next generation. Once, we received the old photos, videos and documents, we went straight to work. First, we decided to scan all photos with high resolution and to tape all videos to the computer. We now started to work with two lines of production.
After scanning all Photos prior, we started the importing process into the famous Daminion Server. Once all got imported, we marked each photo, that had to be processed, with the Daminion Color tags, we then loaded the photo into Photoshop and started processing it. There were different restoration parts to be done. Some Photos had been torn apart and need to be put back together. Some others just lost their tan and some others lost just had to be redressed with some colour.
We used our special tools to enhance the colours, the resolution and more before we started to rip the video sequences apart since on some videotapes had been multiple events.
Once this process was done, we suggested our client the famous Daminion DAM-System to have all files properly sorted. We told her that, we will assist her with installing the System and with importing the catalogue to her machine. Then we demonstrated her, how to properly tag and sort the files. She was so happy to have all the files restored and brought into the new age. She now can start to add these files to her Genealogy data and cite them as sources.
