If you’ve got piles of genealogical research laying around, or old books or historical documents gathering dust, Mocavo,
the world’s largest genealogy search engine, has a “get-’er-done” scanning solution
for you to digitize your materials.
The company has announced its Free Scanning Service, available now through the end
of the year, that will scan members’ historical and genealogical materials—books,
documents and standard-size paper sheets—to bring them online for their owners and
the rest of the Mocavo community.
ReadyMicro, Mocavo’s digitization group, will handle the free document scanning. A
member’s document(s) will be scanned, and he or she will then receive a digital copy
of each document. (Member can have their materials shipped back to them for $10/shipment
plus the cost of shipping.) The members’ documents will also be placed online at Mocavo.
The company’s goal is to work with its community to bring all of the world’s genealogical
information online for free, helping to put everyone’s family history within reach.
