Scanfest is Coming!

This monthly event is hosted by AnceStories and takes place February 23rd beginning at 11:00am Pacific Standard Time.

What is Scanfest? It’s a time when geneabloggers, family historians, and family archivists meet online here at this blog to chat while they scan their precious family document and photos. Why? Because, quite honestly, scanning is time-consuming and boring!

Scanfest is a great time to “meet” other genealogists, ask questions about scanning and preservation, and get the kick in the pants we all need on starting those massive scanning projects that just seem too overwhelming to begin.

Follow the link for details on how to participate.
