REMINDER: Photo Scanning Sunday November 20


We wanted to remind you about the great event happening at the SCGS library this Sunday, November 20, from 11AM-2PM. 1000memories, a popular photo sharing and genealogy website, will be co-hosting "How to Go Home" with SCGS. This free event will include free photo scanning, a show and tell of great old photos, and a short class on family secrets hidden in your shoebox. 1000memories will also be demonstrating a fun new activity for sharing photos and stories with your family this Thanksgiving.

For your benefit, all photos scanned will be archived online at 1000memories.com under your secure account by the Internet Archive. Having your photos online will allow you to access them from your home computer and to share them with your friends or family if you choose to do so. You won't need to bring a thumb drive since the photos will be stored online.

A few reminders:
• Don't forget to bring your shoebox full of old photos
• If you have an iPhone or iPad, please bring them it. 1000memories will hold a tutorial on using Shoebox, their free app that turns iPhones into scanners.
• If you don't have an iPhone, we will provide scanning assistance

Please let us know if you have any questions in advance. We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
We appreciate it if you would REGISTER in advance.
PS - stay for the RootsMagic interest group that starts at 2pm
