Greene Connections is a volunteer initiative to preserve photographs and documents related to genealogy and local history in Greene County, Pennsylvania. Our team works with individuals, families, organizations, and repositories to digitally scan and archivally document historical items for free, public access.

Scan and Submit Your Collection

If you would like to scan and submit your collection, please follow these important steps to speed up processing times and assure quality.

  • In respect to copyright and privacy issues, please only submit photos that were taken before 1927.
  • You MUST own the original photograph or document, or have permission from the owner of the original, in order to share with Greene Connections.

Scanning tips:

  • Photographs in an album or other layout in which they are particularly arranged, should be submitted in original order. Context clues will otherwise be lost.
  • Scan all photos / documents in a full color setting, not in grayscale or black and white.
  • Scan all photos / documents at the highest quality setting, ideally at least 600 dpi or greater.
  • Scan all photos / documents completely, so that our archivists can see the outer edges of each item.
  • Writing or photographer stamps on the back of photos should be scanned as well, so that your photo can be correctly documented.
  • Save each photo / document image as a tiff file (or if necessary, as a jpg file at the highest quality setting, ideally 100%). Do not alter the size or shrink the file.

Use the Donor Form to include:

  • Your contact information so that you can be given appropriate credit and be contacted for any further information that may be needed.
  • Any known information about how the archival record(s) were passed down to, or came to be in the possession of, the current owner.


  • Submissions not meeting the above requirements may not be accepted for the Greene Connections Archives Project.
  • Due to volunteer time and web space limitations, it may not be possible to post every record that is submitted.
  • Due to the current migration of our 15,000+ archival records into the new CatalogIt database, we do have a substantial backlog. Your submissions are welcome with the understanding that volunteers will process them as soon as possible.
