Last Sunday, I hosted the April edition of Scanfest. It was a small group that met and we were not all online at the same time; nonetheless, we enjoyed ourselves as always, and I for one was able to get a lot of materials scanned. Joining me were Amy, Lee, Jasia, the footnoteMaven, and my daughter, Missy. I scanned some photographs my sister-in-law had recently shared with me, along with the listing of my ancestor Jan Martens HOEKSTRA in the Musekgon County, Michigan Probate Records Index, as well as many materials of the DeVRIES family that my uncle recently sent to me. These items can be seen on my Picasa Web Albums account in the following albums: Collins Photographs, Tolliver Photographs, Midkiff Photographs, Hoekstra Documents, and DeVries Documents.
The May edition of Scanfest will be hosted by Susan, and will be held Sunday, May 20th, from 11 AM to 2 PM, Pacific Daylight Time. This is not our regular meeting time, which is normally the last Sunday of each month. It has been changed to an earlier day due to Memorial Day weekend. Please read the other posts on Scanfest to find out how to join. You don't need to be a blogger; we always enjoy new people and it's a great way to get to know each other. Stay tuned to Susan's blogs, Family Oral History and 20/20 Hindsight for more information.
