Flippal2Tips for Taking the Flip-Pal mobile scanner to your Family Gatherings
This webinar will quickly outline the basics of the Flip-Pal mobile scanner and then draw on personal stories and testimonials of how others have used their Flip-Pal mobile scanner for family trip scrapbooks, wedding anniversaries, military reunions, family reunions, genealogy trips, weddings, funerals, showers and more. We will give tips for scanning everything from gravestones and trip mementos to framed pictures in your grandmother's living room. Learn why the Flip-Pal mobile scanner is a highly-regarded genealogy research tool and is the only scanner permitted in the National Archives because it does not risk damaging the original.
