Do you have boxes of old photographs or slides that you intend to get around to digitizing someday? You are not alone; although I have scanned and saved some pictures to my computer, the process takes time and I have so much more to do that it is easy to feel overwhelmed. The other day, however, I discovered a fast, easy, and free way to save my old images: I went to a Family History Center that has equipment to scan photos, slides, and documents. In less than two hours, I had successfully saved over 900 images! To check to see if the Family History Center in your area has the necessary tools: first, follow this link to locate your nearest FHC: https://www.familysearch.org/locations/centerlocator?, then look on their website to see if they have photo scanners. You might need to give them a call or make an online reservation to reserve a time to use the machines, but that call or online booking is simple and could save you a lot of time!
