Just a short note to let you know that the offer to scan documents and photographs is now extended to all participants of the Ancestry.com Seminar. There are some appointments left so please contact me to schedule an appointment if interested. Please ignore this message if you have already scheduled your scanning appointment.
Document types accepted:
We can scan any document type, but the maximum size supported is 36 inches. Any type of photograph (including tintypes) are accepted. We can not scan slides.
More recent photographs or stable documents can be scanned at a much quicker rate on our high speed scanner. Fragile or will be photographed. Copyright and re-publishing rights for the material is strictly the responsibility of the customer, but we reserve the right to reject any document for any reason.
All staples, pins, and fasteners must be removed as well as any tape or sticky material. If photos remain mounted in an album, all photos will scanned as a single image. Bound books do not need to be disassembled, but can be quite slow to scan. If material is stored in sleeves, it needs to be removed prior to the scanning session or it will be scanned with the sleeves in place. Please have all of your documents and pictures sorted by size, largest to smallest, before entering your session. This will enable our scanners to more effectively finish you documents in the time allotted.
Each person will be booked for a single 15 minute time slot. This includes any document preparation that was not done prior to the scanning session. Generally this allows us to scan about
50 documents per person, more if they are newer.
We hope you take advantage of this opportunity.
See you there!
