Reading hard-to-read gravestones using foil &. Digital camera plus no gravestone damage.
My family reunion was last weekend and I had a great time. Family members were so warm and welcoming to my husband and me despite the fact that my branch of the family had not been represented at that reunion in a couple of generations. I was given family pictures (some of which I’ll probably …

Free OCR for Family History Images

Needing to type up transcripts from images? Then test out PDF OCR X where you can apply OCR to images and generate text or searchable PDFs. I used the Free OCR option.

Check out +Jo Castro 's post on Protirement. A number of my genie friends have not retired when they left their jobs. Looks like more and more people are looking at ways to do something you love and make some money at the same time.

It means actively retiring but doing something you enjoy, and still contributing to the ecoconomy. Would you, could you, do you? Read all about it on the blog today and enjoy some lovely images of Western Australia and people who are living their dreams. #retirement #protirement #westernaustralia #art #artists #accommodation  
The art of protirement ... many of us will be actively engaged during our retirement years ... retirement ideas and case studies to inspire you ...
