Thank you for the kind words - my New Years resolution was and still continues to involve reorganizing my research and sources.
Yes -- 'stitching' is also an option (for cards or photos, but I wouldn't recommend it for multi-page documents). I could have sworn that I just did that to a funeral memorial card last month (but can't find it right now). The card consisted of a front, inside left, inside right, and back. I scanned each side then uploaded each image side by side into Microsoft PowerPoint. I saved the PowerPoint 'slide' as a jpg (Save As and then select other format). All four sides of the card were now one jpg.
Now you have me wondering.... where did I put that! LOL.
