Winner of Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner on an Outing With Her Scanner

Last October, Olive Tree Genealogy held a giveaway for a  Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner and Carry Case. The winner was Shirley Farrar and Shirley was kind enough to send me photos of how and where she used her new Flip-Pal Mobile Scanner outside the home.

Shirley tells me that she didn't go to the Ontario Archives as her first outing, instead she conducted some genealogy research at Toronto's First Post office. This post office was built in 1833. It is the sole surviving example of a British Colonial post office in Canada (the Canadian postal service was established in 1851) and the only museum in Canada that collects and studies pre-confederation British North-American postal history.

According to the website, its library and archives are available to researchers by appointment. As a National Historic Site it tells the story of the Royal Mail in Upper Canada (present day Ontario).
