This weeks #familyhistoryonthesabbath idea is coming from the discussions that have been going on in our Season for Family Facebook Group! If you haven’t joined, please join us! We are hoping that it will be a great place for sharing ideas, getting help, helping others and just cheering each other on in our family history journey! To join us, visit —> facebook.com/groups/seasonforfamily
There are several women on the Facebook Group including myself that are working on digitizing! This includes scanning photos, newspaper clippings, documents, recipes, etc. This is a GREAT way to participate in family history. It also does not have to be overly difficult or time consuming. Did you know that you can even scan documents with your phone??
Later today in the Facebook Group, I am going to show you my “station” that I have set up in my room. I have tons to digitize with not a lot of time available, so my strategy has been to create a small space that is set up and ready to go. This way, I can sit down and work on it only 10-15 minutes at a time, making it FIT into my busy schedule.
Share your digitizing tips and tricks below! What scanners or apps do you use? Do you have any questions about digitizing?
Remember, every week we will share a simple idea for bringing family history into your home on the Sabbath day. We would LOVE for you to share your ideas, tag @seasonforfamily in your Instagram post and use the hashtag #familyhistoryonthesabbath
To help us not be on social media all Sunday, we will share your ideas on the following Saturday night or Sunday morning in our stories. They will then be available for viewing on Sunday.
