Kenneth R. Marks [TheAncestorHunt.com] and I have started a Scanning Facebook Group called Sunday ScanDay just for beginner and intermediate hobbyists who 'meet' virtually every Sunday at 3pm CT [4pm ET / 2pm MT / 1PM PT] for 1 hour in order to scan photos, documents, etc. A kind of a scanning support group, if you will.
Because scanning tends to be a boring task, it tends to get pushed down on the to-do list, and many times it never gets done. So the Sunday ScanDay group was formed to give folks who are scanning something a little more to do while getting some scanning done.
What do we 'talk' about while scanning? Anything and everything. This group is closed and meant to serve beginner and intermediate hobbyists. Bring your scanning questions without wondering if it's a 'stupid' question because there are no 'stupid' questions in this group of beginners and hobbyists.
Want to talk about something else off-topic? Great! Talk about football [or another sport]. Talk about whatever you want. We're a social bunch.
And? Each week you're welcome to share [upload] your favorite photo, document, or heirloom with the group in the group's photo album, or give a shout out to the group to let fellow group members know how many things you were able to scan that week.
When we're not scanning on Sundays, feel free to ask questions about scanning at any time. Again, there are no 'stupid' questions in this group. Sunday ScanDay is a scanning support group and is labeled as a Safe Zone. We are all working together to get our 'stuff' scanned, and to have some fun while doing it.
Also, if there's a need, we'll setup another official scanning day and time for those who work on the weekends and can't join the group on Sundays. [Sunday ScanDay on Mondays, perhaps.]
We all know it's always easier to do something with others supporting you and doing it with you. While you don't have to 'show up' every Sunday, at least you know we'll be here when you can join us.
Once-a-week for one hour with other folks who are scanning. Easy peasy.
Professionals, please note: This group is intended to serve beginners and intermediate hobbyists. If you are a genealogy professional, this group is not intended to serve you. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Come join us in the Sunday ScanDay Facebook Group today! The first scanning session [Okay, get-together] is Sunday, 25 Nov 2012, at 3PM CT [4pm ET / 2pm MT / 1PM PT] for 1 hour.
