Images used on this site

To answer a question I received about the images used on this site over the past week or so. They have all been from digital scans I made from microfilm while on my recent trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake. In fact, I did not make one paper copy the entire time I was at the library. I stayed at the library for a few days after my group trip was over and made approximately 300 digital copies of various records, putting them on a flash drive. Of course, that flash drive is already backed up in several places.

I have made paper copies of some of the scans I made. But the scans are easy to use and very portable. I will be posting more of them over the next few weeks.
