Documenting 100 years of history

Published: Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 11:27 AM.

Those providing the photos will be asked, for documentation, about the photos, where they were taken, circumstances, who is captured in the photos.

“We are archiving photo history,” said Nelson.

All that information will be recorded for posterity as the committee builds a history book that will at one point be posted online and will also be captured later in a printed form.

“It is about them, it is about history,” said Danny Raffield, also a member of the committee.

At some point, there will be a DVD made that will be available for purchase and the archive, once finished will also be available within the Florida Genealogy Room at the Port St. Joe Public Library.

There will be ice cream and pie served during the “Scan Day” as refreshments for those who come out and donations for the Centennial Celebration will also be accepted.

In short, the Centennial Committee is hoping that the folks who comprise this community will help them tell the tale of the city of Port St. Joe over the past 100 years, since the founding of the modern city.
