Photos and documents are an important means of preserving our memories and family history and most of us probably have boxes of old photos and documents stored away somewhere. Part of the process at Barrett Family Genealogy is to create a digital collection of photos and documents of all family members in every branch of our family tree.

If you would like to contribute to the collection, the first part of the process is to convert the original media into a digital version. If you have a smart phone (iPhone, android or windows) or iPad or tablet it has now become very easy to scan photos and documents using the camera on your device and a free app called CamScanner.

I have been using it for some time and its amazing. The basic account is free which provides all the best features but if you use the link below you can receive 1 month of free premium service. After the first month you will still retain the free account. I highly recommend it.
