About The Historical Society Leerdam
The Historical Society Leerdam was founded on November 17, 1980. The association wants to increase knowledge and interest in the history of the town and its inhabitants. They do this by publishing articles on the history of the municipality of Leerdam and history in a broader sense. In addition, they give lectures on various historical subjects and the association organizes excursions to places with an interesting history.
The Historical Society Leerdam collects old photographs, graphics and maps to publish through their MediaFiler image bank on their website.
Do you recognize someone?
They also have a special archive called ‘Do you know?’ where visitors can pass on the names of places, events or people whom they recognize in the photos. The managers of the image library can review the new information, then edit and publish the information against the relevant material.
The ability to permit users add information to material they view in MediaFiler is a standard option available in all MediaFiler systems. With internal systems this can be instant, with public system, then it is moderated, requiring review by staff.
