The next time you visit Albright Memorial Library to do genealogy research, do yourself a favor and bring along your flash drive.
Did you know that the Reference Department at our library has a microfilm scanner/printer that allows you to save images from microfilm (including birth and death records AND newspapers) to your flash drive? It's very simple and very convenient...and most of our genealogy patrons don't even know when they come to our library that we have this capability in Reference.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask a Reference staff member and we'll be more than happy to help you.
