FamilySearch recently announced the acquisition of over 2,800 Lexmark MFP scanners that are being placed in their family history centers. The scanners have been specially modified with a one-touch button that goes directly to the FamiliySearch.org log in page. Scan your ancestral photos and documents and they are uploaded directly to a folder in your FamilySearch account.
The program resolve a number of issues that have haunted genealogists for years.
- A long term safe (free) storage repository or our photos and documents
- A great scanner and related software
- An Internet connection
- No Cost
Once the images are uploaded, you can access them from any Internet connected computer and add them to related ancestral records on Family Tree to document your ancestors.
Save a copy of your scans to a thumb drive at the branch library or from your account on FamilySearch.
It is yet another solution by FamilySearch to resolve a genealogy problem.
