Family Secrets Hidden in Your Shoebox?

Shoeboxology
Did you know 1000memories will be at the Midwest Genealogy Center (MGC), 19 Nov to feature their Shoebox App? 1000 Memories is offering a free scanning session at the Midwest Genealogy Center in Independence, Missouri, on November 19, 2011. The event starts with a class entitled, “Genealogy Clues In Your Family Shoebox” at 1:00 pm, followed by a tutorial on how to use the 1000 Memories website (a free password-protected website for sharing your genealogy) at 1:45 pm. Finally, you can scan your photos and documents from 2-4 p.m. with unlimited scanning.

The Goal
This “Memory-Sharing Platform [will] help Missouri families digitize photo and video collections for the holidays.

Event
This free event includes unlimited scanning of photos and videos, a "show & tell" of great old photographs, and a short class on vintage photography.

Launching the week before Thanksgiving, Shoeboxology will show MGC participants how they can make family photo sharing a big part of their holiday. “It’s a time when families are together with the people who remember the stories and people behind the photographs” says Mike Katchen, director of business development at 1000memories. “That’s why it’s so important to take advantage of holidays to share these stories and save them for future generations”. It is open to the public.  Don’t miss out on this free opportunity! RSVP at mcg@1000memories.com.
