As family historians, how do you collect the multi-dimensional aspects of a life? By using a Flip-Pal mobile scanner you can scan the 3-D parts of a life for a history. So many things are available for digital scanning: lace from a delicate wedding dress, fragile documents, medals from a grandfather’s military services, jewelry inherited from a favorite aunt, and more! The fabric of a life that tells a more rich and vibrant story is not always a neat flat picture or an easy-to-record piece of data. It often comes in multiple dimensions and in layers.
