Starting to Scan Slides

I was getting kind of tired of scanning prints, so I decided to take a look at some of the slides. Scanning slides is a bit more complicated and much slower. There are all kinds of options to try for backlight color correction, color restoration, sharpening, and dust removal. These should be considered rough drafts.

Mary Potts (my paternal grandmother) and my uncle Ted:


Sally and Elmer (I think that is Elmer):


Bonus points to anyone who knows the name of the dogs, or the year, or the exact location.

Really? That is pretty much it for the slides, but I still have a HUGE backlog of photos to scan, including some of your father's family.

That makes you my first cousin, since Elmer is my Uncle.

I have not made family tree charts of my father's side of the family. Years ago I met Noah, Buckridge, and Harmony. I have a hard time remembering exactly who belongs to who!
