I just watched a bit of the earlier updates for today and they were talking about citing where documents came from.  Does this include photo's?  I have scanned copies of photos that have belonged to my family members.  I don't need to explain which family member I have gotten photos from do I?
Sources aren’t necessary, but you can’t put up copyrighted material.

Hello, fellow Mass-a-Thoners. It looks like we have a small team, but that means we can spend more time uploading images than we spend chatting!

I confess that I probably have more Vermont images lined up to contribute than I have from any other state (including Massachusetts), but I think that's OK because Massachusetts is central to all of the places my images come from.

I scanned a few old photos today. Somewhere in the middle of the process, it dawned on me that before I scan an old photo I should copy the information from the back of the photo onto a separate piece of paper to be scanned along with the photo -- to create a scan for my files that includes a description of the photo subject. (Of course, when I upload them I'll just upload the photo, and add the description to the electronic text.)

Small but perfectly formed??
Not sure how I wound up in Team Massachusetts as I was born in NZ and live in Australia and have no known links there :) Time difference may limit my chats. I have a pen drive full of family photos my cousin sent me. Many of them do have names scribbled on them and this is a perfect time for me to sort through them and label the files as I upload.
Don’t feel bad. I have pictures taken in Illinois and New York, as well as Massachusetts. I even have some taken in Maine. The where isn’t as important as getting old pictures on WT.
