See there is work in the federal government if you love and care for scrapbooks (other than working at the Smithsonian). I can across this solicitation today "Digitization of non-textual records, scrapbooks", So there is hope that one day my love for scrapbooks will bring me real money! LOL
Digitizing is what I'm about lately, I organized my digital images from just one family line last Friday...took about three hours. Here's something textual I cam across.
It's a sermon written by my great-great grandfather, my dad scanned it for me a few years ago. Looks like I'll have to re-scan it (1) one page at a time, at a higher dpi (2) stitch it together if it's too big for the flatbed.
How precious is this. Already I have printed it out as background paper to use on a project for his kids (now 70+ years old). I trust all of my large-scale scanning and digitizing to Monica at www.harborscrapbooking.com
