What was Natalie's best history discovery she's captured with a scanner?
"I have been helping my father research the history of my great-grandfather, a Methodist Minister from WA who faked his death and ran away with the maid to Canada. He was a highly regarded member of the Western Australian Methodist Church.... Our research unearthed some hidden certificates in a relatives basement; an invitation for the Reverend and his wife to attend the opening of Parliament and an evening soiree after the opening. These are by far my best history discovery and we scanned the documents before sending them to a conservator for preservation. Unfortunately, we do not believe he attended the event".
