As I approach the spring gathering of my local genealogy group, I am once again excited to take along my handy dandy Flip-Pal mobile scanner. When I had it with me last year, one friend was so impressed with its size and functionality that she told me she purchased one shortly thereafter. I recently was able to put it to use when my aunt received some pictures from someone else, and I wanted copies. I hated to take the pictures home with me, which would take them out of my aunt’s hands for at least a week. Instead, I just brought my Flip-Pal with me the next time I visited. My aunt couldn’t believe that the little machine was actually doing anything!
I love when someone has a new gadget I can see and experience firsthand, and I am excited to be able to do the same for others with my Flip-Pal. So here’s to hoping some folks bring some great photos and documents to the gathering this weekend so I can put my Flip-Pal to work!
