Knowing that I have had a Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner for some time Alan Phillips from Gould Genealogy, who is now importing these devices into Australia, asked me if I would demonstrate the gadget during a couple of breaks at the recent Genealogy Congress in Adelaide. I must not have blotted my copybook at that event as Alan has invited me to do a few repeat performances.

I spent a couple of pleasant days at the Shoalhaven Family History Fair in Nowra demonstrating the Flip-Pal. As well as demonstrating the scanner on the Gould Genealogy stand at the Unlock the Past Brisbane Expo I gave three talks about using the Flip-Pal and organising one's images with Picasa. my three other presentations were on Geneablogging, Geneawebinars and Google+ for Genealogy. My latest appearance was at the Parramatta Unlock the Past event last Friday where I put the-Pal through its paces in the breaks between the talks at the Unlock the Past seminar.
I have enjoyed my new role as super-salesperson. That I was employed to meet and chat with other genealogists and given an opportunity to attend three extra genealogy events was a welcome opportunity for me. If you'd like to see the Flip-Pal in action I will be showing it off on the Gould Genealogy stand at the 28th Annual Conference of the NSW & ACT Association of Family History Societies in September and on the 3rd Unlock the Past Genealogy Cruise next February.
I was prompted to write this post after reading Lynn Palermo's post yesterday. Without the support of Gould I would not have been able to attend either the Shoalhaven or Brisbane events.
