Flip-Pal Mobile Scanners
The Flip-Pal lightweight scanners are just 4x6 inches and are convenient to keep on your desk, in a drawer, or in a briefcase or bag. They run on 4 AA batteries and can scan files, documents, or periodicals of any size. You can scan small pictures or other items (up to 4X6 inches) directly by putting them on the screen and closing the cover, or you can scan larger items in sections by removing the cover and flipping the screen so it is on top of the item  (see pictures at right and below). They work by scanning sections of the document and "stitching" the sections together seamlessly on your PC or laptop with built-in software on the SD memory card that comes with the scanner. No expertise is required by the operator: you get a single file that you can download to your hard drive like a digital photo. A built-in LCD screen shows you what you have scanned.  These scanners are handy for genealogists, researchers, and scrapbookers.

We have several members who have purchased Flip-Pal Mobile Scanners, and they love them. As a fundraising campaign for our Society, we have ordered several Flip-Pals and several accessories.

Each sale benefits your Society. Our prices are the same as those of the manufacturer. However, direct purchase from them would involve an additional shipping fee. Our price includes both shipping and sales tax. Purchasing from the Society benefits its members.

Fairfax County Gravestone Books
In the mid-1980s, the Fairfax Genealogical Society undertook a project to transcribe the gravestones found in cemeteries throughout Fairfax County.  This effort resulted in the publication of a 6 volume set of books in the 1990s. The project also resulted in the discovery of more than 350 burial sites in the County.
