About Historical Circle Ommen
The ‘Historical Circle Ommen’ was founded in January 1997 and has more than 700 members. Members work together in eight different workgroups such as the Genealogy group or the Second World War group.

The association uses MediaFiler Digital Asset Management as an archive to manage, capture and save the history of Ommen. They separate out different content and material using a number of image archives.
The word ‘archive’ evokes in many people something boring, dusty and ‘not for me’, but to counter this concept, it is written in their newsletter: “You cannot survive without archives if you want to know something about the past!”
