Finding Family

One woman's obsession with family history.

With the help of the Flip-Pal Scanner scanning my Nan’s old photo album became a breeze. 272 photos and many, many hours later; the album is now completely digitised. After all the work, organising and labelling (some of which aren’t actually labelled yet – Mum, help!) I’m feeling a little lost. What should I scan and organise next? In the meantime, I’d like to share with you a few of my favourites.Sandra Nicholson (Sandra with her birthday cake at 1 year old)

    Photo scannng and restoration can be time consuming but rewarding. You’re lucky to find albums to copy. Best wishes to you Jess.

      I am very grateful (and lucky!) to have albums to copy. Though it is time consuming nothing beats that feeling when you’ve finally finished and every photo is digitised. 🙂 Best wishes to you too Neville.
