I am participating in the Fearless Females theme for
National Women's History Month
Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great-grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when.
Yes, I have a marriage certificate scanned for one set of grandparents. Yes, I have marriage certificates for great-grandparents - but they are sitting neatly in folders and not scanned. Geneabloggers.com promotes a once-a-month event called Scanfest, where (as Thomas MacEntee says) "geneabloggers, family historians, and family archivists meet online here at [the ancestories] blog to chat while they scan their precious family documents and photos."
And guess what? When I came to write my post for today's entry in the Fearless Females theme, I found that almost-unheard of thing: everything was put away nicely. Oh, and by the way - not scanned for immediate use. I missed Scanfest in February (I find this often happens when translating timezones from the US to the UK). It's usually the last Sunday in the month, but in March we in the UK will change our clocks, so I hope I can work out when I am supposed to be there! If not, I will at least make a date with myself to do some scanning...
