“I want to tell the stories of my mother’s family,” explained Jackie Zhang, a native of China currently living in Salt Lake City, Utah. “I was able to scan in two photos, one of my mother and another of my grandparents, but I have a lot of information missing. Much of my family history was lost in the Cultural Revolution, but my uncle has additional records that will help. I have been able to contact him, but I don’t have the further information at this time.”
Now it takes only minutes for valuable family photographs or documents such as Zhang’s to be scanned, transmitted and published.
