VGS General Monthly Meeting
Wednesday, May 24
VGS General Monthly Meeting  (Monthly Meeting)
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Savannah Regional Recreation Center
Presentation: Our guest speaker is Donna Bachowski "EPOCH"
Description: EPOCH is a depository of information that will be held for future generations of researchers and genealogists. 
Donna Bachowski has over 20 years of experience in many facets of public library operations. Prior to joining the Orange County Library System, Bachowski was a library director in New Jersey and worked for Broward County (FL) Libraries. She is project manager for EPOCH, Orlando Memory and the Right Service at the Right Time. Bachowski has an MLS from the University of South Florida and BA in Library Science from the University of Southern Mississippi.

Created by the Orange County Library System with a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, EPOCH (Electronically Preserving Obituaries as Cultural Heritage) is a website that allows anyone to create and publish a free obituary online. With the decline in newspaper obituaries, EPOCH was developed as a digital repository of user-contributed obituary information that will be held for future generations of researchers and genealogists. Family and friends of the deceased can submit detailed obituaries as a tribute to their loved ones and share a meaningful memory with the residents of the community. This presentation will describe the history of EPOCH, demonstrate how to create a tribute, and share ideas on how it can be used with both historical and contemporary obituaries.
