Ancestry.com Offers Free Scanning, Volunteers Sought

Ancestry.com offers free document digitization at major conferences

Once again Ancestry.com is offering a free scanning service to attendees of the National Genealogical Society Conference in Cincinnati next week. Scanning will take place in room 238 at the convention center. You need to come by the room and set up an appointment for a 30 minute session. Sessions will run from 9 until 5, Wednesday through Friday, and 9 to 1 on Saturday. You provide the documents and photographs, Ancestry provides flash drives to contain the scanned images.

To facilitate this free service, NGS is recruiting volunteers to facilitate scheduling and check-in. Two volunteers are needed for each time slot, to take sign-ups for the day, help return items, and bring items to the scanning rooms.

If you can help out to make this free scanning service possible, please contact Shirley Wilcox at slwilcox@juno.com.
