Scan-a-Thon is a 72-hour scanning marathon starting Friday morning, January 11, at 8 AM (ET) and ending Monday, January 14, at 8 AM (ET). That would be 15.00 in Finland and 14.00 in the other Scandinavian countries.

Our goal is to scan and upload photos and other items such as letters, postcards, ephemera, funeral cards, and primary documents.

Spic-n-Span Scandinavians will be doing it for the sake of preserving our family history and enriching our ancestors' profiles, not competing.
