I got a new portable scanner today. I based my decision primarily on Dick Eastman’s recommendation of the VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand Portable Scanner in his newsletter, Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter. I am surprised how easy and quick it is to set up and simple it is to use. This picture of my parents is from a very large and cumbersome yearbook from their freshman year in college. The yearbook itself is very awkward to handle and almost impossible to place on a flatbed scanner. It took me only a matter of minutes to scan, upload to my computer and add the text notes to the picture. I think I am going to be using this scanner quite often!
