RSFHS is looking for volunteers of all ages to help with the digital archives project, an initiative to make publicly accessible all archival holdings via the RSFHS website. We are looking for multiple volunteers interested in the following tasks:
- Scanning and digitizing archival materials, including photographs, newspapers, correspondence, drawings, and pamphlets;
- Creating container lists for the archival boxes in the storage room (will involve lots of reading and learning about RSF!);
- Researching and drafting posts of interest to RSFHS’s social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter;
- Photographing the space and some of the materials that cannot be scanned, such as objects and larger flat items;
- Other archives tasks as needed.
This will be a perfect opportunity for archives and library science students, historians (or history buffs), or high school students looking for exposure and willing to take ownership of a project. However, the opportunity is open to anyone – we’d love to hear from you! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 858-756-9291.
RSFHS takes Covid precautions seriously and will make sure our volunteers feel safe and distanced. We currently require masks when working in and visiting the space, and operate with a maximum capacity of 10 people indoors.
We are sorry to inform you that this event is now sold out.
On September 17, 2021, Ranch resident and RSF Historical Society Member Fred Grand presents “Rancho Santa Fe in the First 7,000 Years: Pre-Historic Times to Rancho San Dieguito.” Grand is a descendent of the Kumeyaay people that have inhabited the San Diego County area for thousands of years. He will share his knowledge of San Diego County’s first people and significant archeological sites in the San Dieguito Valley, including Osuna Ranch.
Reserve your spot today as seats are limited to 20.
Facial coverings are required for those who are not vaccinated against Covid-19 and recommended for everyone.
