High Resolution Scanning and Digitizing of Photographs

The AMS is interested in obtaining old photographs of persons, groups, businesses, and events relating to the history of the Alvin area. The photographs are scanned to become part of our digital archives and then the originals are returned to the owner.

Archive of Alvin Sun Newspaper - early Editions

The AMS archives contain the only collection of old editions of the Alvin Sun. These have been photographed and digitized in preparation for use with Optical Character Recognition software to use for research purposes.

Using Past Perfect software to compile a database

Volunteers login and document information about artifacts, documents and photographs which have been acquired or donated to the Museum. The database will be used to help create future exhibits.

Oral History

The AMS is making a catalog of existing taped interviews with plans to transfer them to a digital format. New equipment will allow digital interviews to be conducted with local people to preserve their life stories.

Museum volunteers are available to give presentations based on research done through out collection on places, people and events connected to Alvin's history.

AMS members are encouraged to volunteer for these special activities. See HOME page to sign up
