Genealogy Geeks Unite

Tonight a genealogy discussion group I belong to had a “Lock-In”.  About 50 of us were locked in a local public library for 6 hours this evening to do research.  It was my first lock-in so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.

 

The night was long, but enjoyable.  Several people, including me, volunteered as “experts”.  I was able to help a couple people with their research, which was great!
People were able to collaborate on research, share ideas and use library resources. 
I decided that I would take the evening scanning many of my random notes into Evernote in my effort to “go paperless”. I got everything I took scanned and ready to index much quicker than I thought.
I scanned all the random notes in these notebooks using the CamScanner app on my iPhone. It worked great!
I very much look forward to the next lock-in event.
