    Digitize Your Family History Webinar

    Photo and Scan Your Genealogy Photos and Documents

    If you are looking for tips to speed up your family heirloom digitization project, you may be interested in a new webinar I will be presenting Thursday, 9 August 2012 for Family Tree University.

    Digitize Your Family History will feature:

    What does it mean "to digitize"

    Why you should digitize your family keepsakes

    Scanning vs. Digital Photography

    Choosing what to digitize

    Using a commercial digitizing service

    Tricks for making copies with your digital camera 

    Tips for scanning success

    Setting scan resolution (dpi)

    Naming digital files

    In addition, attendees have submitted how-to questions that will be answered during the webinar, and have an opportunity to ask further questions at the end of the presentation. Topics include:

    How to scan a tintype

    Setting up a digital camera to photograph framed items

    Scanner settings for cabinet card photographs

    Digitizing an oversize document

    and more

    My favorite part of the program shows my newest photo innovation -- using a flexible tripod for some camera gymnastics.

    Hope you can join us next Thursday, August 9 at 4 pm Pacific Time / 5 p.m. Mountain / 6 p.m. Central / 7 p.m. Eastern
