MyHeritage mobile apps now includes a scanner feature. You’ll find the scanner in the Photos section of the app or in the photo section of any individual’s info screen.
Put the photo or document on a flat surface with a contrasting background then tap the Scan photos button on the screen. The app will find the edges of your document and automatically take the picture. If it doesn’t, you just tap the round “button” at the bottom of the screen.
You can rotate the image and do some basic editing if necessary. There are several filters available including a “Document” filter which improves the visibility of your scan by whitening the background and sharpening the text.
When you tap Save, the scanned image is saved to your Photos section in MyHeritage. You can use the tag icon at the top of the document screen to tag the person referenced in the image and it will appear in that person’s profile on your family tree.
FamilySearch has updated its mobile apps to include record hinting – a blue icon on a person’s detail page – that links to the record hints.
