National Archives and memory sticks

Now, I dont know about all locations, but at the SE regional archives here in georgia, you can now take your usb memory sticks with you and instead of having to print out microfilm records on paper, you can pdf them to your stick!!!

No more paying for the copies you made, just plug the memory stick in and scan from the microfilm reader straight into a pdf file that you can print out later at your leisure,

If you’re planning on visiting a regional national archvies near you…call them up and ask them if they are doing this like the one here is. I cant tell you how much easier this is. I now have military records I needed for my family tree program in electronic form without the hassel of scanning them from a paper copy (and we all know how crappy those usually turn out)
