Scanfest is Coming!

The July 2014 Scanfest will take place here at AnceStories this coming Sunday, July 27th, from 11 AM to 2 PM, Pacific Daylight Time.

What is Scanfest? It’s a time when geneabloggers, family historians, and family archivists meet online here at this blog to chat while they scan their precious family document and photos. Why? Because, quite honestly, scanning is time-consuming and boring!

Scanfest is a monthly online event hosted by Miriam at AnceStories.

Scanfest is a great time to “meet” other genealogists, ask questions about scanning and preservation, and get the kick in the pants we all need on starting those massive scanning projects that just seem too overwhelming to begin.

A Genealogy Fair!

This year the National Archives is sponsoring a virtual genealogy fair September 3rd and 4th. You can attend via webcast and enjoy a program full of information on immigration, Native American history, African American history, Civil War pensions, U.S. Colored Troops and much more. Lectures will be presented by genealogy experts from both the National Archives and the Immigration Service.

But that’s not all!

Staff members will be available throughout the fair for call-in consultation. And, if you can’t make it for the live presentations, they’re all being recorded so you can watch them later.

To learn more, visit the Genealogy Fair page at NARA. You can keep up with that latest news via #genfair2013 on Twitter.

Now to figure out how to get my hands on some good fair food . . .
