(I have always wanted a magic wand!)Now I can finally scan legal size documents! It will also come in handy when I go to the library and find precious genealogical materials that can't be checked out! Now I am really looking forward to a trip to an archive building (whenever that is)!
So here is my first attempt at using the scanner. Said magic wand doesn't have enough magic to ensure that I scan straight, however. (I guess I will have to practice)
The following document is Quit-claim Deed made between Oregon Short Line Railroad Company and James S. Poulsen (my great-grandfather) Jan 21, 1911. As always, click on images for larger view.
That is not the only genealogical gift that I got. I also got the money for a year membership with New England Historic Genealogical Society (now American Ancestors)! The check's in the mail and I can't wait to get full access to their database! I also look forward to receiving the journals in the mail. You just don't know how long I have wanted to own one of those NEHGS journals!
