1000memories, creator of the popular ShoeBox iPhone app that lets you scan and share old paper photos, will host a free scanning event including two sessions of photo and document scanning and a short class on uncovering family stories hidden in your shoeboxes and closets.

There is no limit on the number of photos or documents you may bring to the workshop. 1000Memories will furnish iPhones to participants to use in the workshop. Registrants who own an iPhone or iPad2 are encouraged to download the ShoeBox App for use during the event.

Register online.

Space is limited. Each session is open to all CGS members but is limited to fifteen participants. Preregistration is required and walk-ins will not be admitted. Registration confirmations will be sent to the first fifteen who register for each session. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

I attended the 1000memories workshop in Houston. It's fun! You'll enjoy it.

Obviously I already missed that event at this point. I only came across this page by accident while searching digital preservation materials. Is there any part 2 for that event, anyone? I'd be very interested to participate. Thanks in advance. Cheers!

Unfortunately for me, I missed this event. I actually support and use this app however I think it is better if it also has an online document storage where we could save and organize our scanned files.
