FamilySearch has announced a new, free service to digitally scan, save, and share your photos and documents. The scanning machines are available in 2,800 family history centers in North America (and coming soon to international centers). Just take your pile of photos and documents to a FamilySearch family history center.
The family history centers use customized Lexmark multifunction machines that quickly scan photos, certificates, and other documents. The most exciting part is that the software lets you scan your documents and photos directly into a free FamilySearch.org account where the documents and photos can later be tagged, explained, shared with others, or attached to ancestors in your free FamilySearch Family Tree. You can also save the digital copies to a thumb drive and take them home with you.
