For those of you who are following Ol' Myrt's 2011 January Organization Checklist are aware that on the 31st (this coming Sunday) we're scheduled to participate in Scanfest from 11am to 2pm Pacific US time. Even if you haven't been following the checklist, ALL are welcome to participate in scanning old photos and documents.

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."

It isn't necessary to join in the online Scanfest chat, but it helps pass the time while that scanner is doing it's thing.
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
