Help Maureen put Ancestry employees back to work

Although the scanning team was busy all morning, when Ol' Myrt here visited them at the National Genealogical Society yesterday, they were ahead of schedule and had completed all scanning projects for the morning. How I wish I'd brought some of my scanning work with us for them to process!

So what's Maureen got to do with it?

Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective, will offer free photo analysis today starting at 1pm at the Duke Energy Convention Center in Cincinnati, Ohio in the Ancestry Scanning room.

For more information about Ancestry's free scanning, see:

  • You will be able to sign up for a 30-minute time slot, on a first come, first served basis. 
  • Generally Ancestry can scan about 50 documents per person in a 30-minute slot, more if documents and photos are newer and/or not fragile.
  • The scanned files will be saved to a thumb drive (provided by and given to attendees for their own use. 
Two types of digitizing equipment are available. The photo copy stands are equipped with 21mp (!) Cannon digital SLR cameras, attached to computers.

Ancestry also brought one of their high speed digital scanners, used recently to scan thousands of pages from city directories.

Take advantage of this free photo analysis and digitization service from two of the best in the business.

Happy family tree climbing!
