>Ready, Set… Scan!

>I’ve just borrowed a large late-1800’s-era family photograph (maybe 2′ x 1.5′) to scan. No, not for my Online Family Archive, as you might suspect; this is actually from my husband’s side. Trouble is, now I’ve got to find equipment to use to scan it, and read some tips on handling old/fragile photographs.

There are a number of other Hoffman family photos in albums that the family is interested in having me scan, but these are of a more normal size. I’m wondering if my decidedly consumer-grade HP flatbed scanner is an okay option for these.

It looks like I’m becoming the Family Archivist… for two families!
