FAMILY HISTORIES

Home printers and scanners have revolutionized the way in which people can recreate their family's genealogical history. Instead of having costly reproductions made by professional photography studios, people can scan their family photos, resize them, enhance the color or black and white imagery, and make their own copies for use in family history albums. With a high- quality scanner, printer, and photo paper, a family genealogist can reproduce images that are hard to distinguish from the source photo.
