Pastfinders Scanning Meeting rescheduled to October 29
including the One-on-One Tutorials
Bring your photos, albums, documents to our Scanning meeting on an October Saturday Morning and we will scan your items and transfer them to a thumb drive that you bring with you. We have several scanners that will scan any flat item (so you do not need to remove items from an album or scrapbook). Many of us have old albums that now have permanent photos that can not be removed without being damaged. Well we can scan them. We will start at 9:30 AM on Saturday and finish at 12:30 PM, October 29 at the Cooper Memorial Library in the Genealogy Room on the 2nd floor. We may have to limit the number of items that we can scan for you depending on the size of the crowd.
We are also doing an introductory to computer genealogy research the same day and at the same times. Those interested should determine in advance what ancestor they would like to research and to write down all the information they have on that person and their parents (full name, date born, where born, date died, etc). They will be helped to enter that information on an ancestral chart and then meet with a volunteer who will help them explore researching on the internet using ancestry.com, familysearch.org or any other sites that may be useful. We will be in the computer lab on the 2nd floor right next to the genealogy room.
