Q. Why should genealogists scan
all photos and documents?
A. First, you protect the images when you scan and store multiple copies in multiple places so they don’t get lost [or ruined]. You can keep them accessible and organized on your computer, so you don’t have to shuffle through boxes and files to find them. Plus, digitizing photos is a great way to easily share them with grandchildren and others.
