My new portable scanner – VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand

I got a new portable scanner today.  I based my decision primarily on Dick Eastman’s recommendation of the VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand Portable Scanner in his newsletter,  Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter.  I am surprised how easy and quick it is to set up and simple it is to use.  This picture of my parents is from a very large and cumbersome yearbook from their freshman year in college.  The yearbook itself is very awkward to handle and almost impossible to place on a flatbed scanner.  It took me only a matter of minutes to scan, upload to my computer and add the text notes to the picture.  I think I am going to be using this scanner quite often!

  1. Welcome to the GeneaBloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!

  2. thank you for the review. I have a great flat bed scanner that I love. I is portable and only uses a usb to my laptop, but I have been looking for another, smaller one for those large awkward tomes.
