FRIDAY FREEBIE! You Can Do This: Photo Organization and Preservation

So I’m finally tackling a HUGE box of family photos I recently received from a relative. There are some AMAZING images and I’ll be using them for my upcoming Memorial Day tributes to my military ancestors.

Recently I’ve received several emails asking me what type of scanner I use, which photo editing software I recommend, and more.  So . . . this week I’m making available for FREE the handout I use for my popular lecture You Can Do This: Photo Organizing and Preservation. Access tips and tricks that I personally use when tackling my own photo projects!

  • Amazon: Save up to 63% on The Lost Family: How DNA Testing Is Upending Who We Are by Libby Copeland. “A deeply reported look at the rise of home genetic testing and the seismic shock it has had on individual lives. You swab your cheek or spit into a vial, then send it away to a lab somewhere. Weeks later you get a report that might tell you where your ancestors came from or if you carry certain genetic risks. Or the report could reveal a long-buried family secret and upend your entire sense of identity. Soon a lark becomes an obsession, an incessant desire to find answers to questions at the core of your being, like “Who am I?” and “Where did I come from?” Welcome to the age of home genetic testing. In The Lost Family, journalist Libby Copeland investigates what happens when we embark on a vast social experiment with little understanding of the ramifications. Copeland explores the culture of genealogy buffs, the science of DNA, and the business of companies like Ancestry and 23andMe, all while tracing the story of one woman, her unusual results, and a relentless methodical drive for answers that becomes a thoroughly modern genetic detective story.”  VIEW DETAILS
