However, if YOU are wanting to download multiple images, it does NOT work. Example: American Revolutionary War Pension Files (41 pages), it does NOT give YOU the opportunity to download All 41 images, therefore is useless. I have wasted my own time, twice, sending an email home, so I could download the American Revolutionary War Pension Files, of two individuals, (23 pages and 41 pages, respectively), only to find out, it would only allow me to download, the first image. Which is basically an index card with the individuals name on it, and nothing more. I pray that Ancestry.com will work on this issue. 64 images/pages at 10 cents a page equals $6.40, just for those images. I would appreciate being able to save my time and money. Thank YOU, for your time, consideration, and cooperation, I truly appreciate it.

Anderson Sun, 20 Apr 2014 21:36:55 +0000 http://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/?p=15610#comment-231569 I’ve used this feature from our local library and it works great. When I have multiple items to send from one session they’re bundled together in one email message. Thanks!

In the past we advised patrons to use the earlier option to email documents to themselves at home, which was found on the upper right of the screen, with an envelope icon. However, we suddenly ran into the situation in which the emails were never received. We were told that the problem was that a limit on the number of emails that could be sent had been exceeded. (They were far less than 300.) Is that no longer an issue?

Is this because I am in Canada?

Just go to the main person and click on Media, then follow their instructions. It’s just as easy to add images to your own family tree software.
Please be sure to add the database name, the name you used in your search, and the web address. You can copy and paste into Microsoft Word
or other software provided by the library.
This information can make it easy for you to find the record again and also help the rest of us if we need further information.

David, any document you find at the library and send home you can access at home. You can access to up to 300 documents at anyone time.

Not every library allows the use of flash drives as Linda said, but that is a fine option if they do.

It is not available in CA, UK or AU but should be within the next month or two.

I’ve never tried taking a picture of a document on a computer screen in the library. Does that turn out well?

And whatever method you use that makes sense to you to archive your finds in the library — that is great by us! We know that printing can be expensive and problematic at times and that flash drives are not an option for everyone, so we thought we would add a new one to the mix.

We operate on a miniscule budget of less than $100k.
