Scanning Photos and Documents
Mike McMahon

Many of us in the genealogy world face the task of scanning from time to time. It may be to organize and scan batches of family photos or it may be to scan a document or magazine article for future reference/sharing with others. Our program presenter and instructor, Mike McMahon, will not only discuss traditional scanning but will also include tips on how to use a camera or smartphone to accomplish the same task. Please bring note-taking material. The last 15 minutes of class will be devoted to your questions.
