MyHeritage Introduces Photo Storyteller™ to Record the Stories Behind Your Favorite Family Photos and Attach the Audio Narrative to the Photos

I have briefly used this new feature from MyHeritage and am impressed. I plan to spend several hours this week adding this to the individuals in my personal genealogy database.

As stated in the announcement of the new product:

“The Photo Storyteller™ is available on the free MyHeritage mobile app and enables you to easily record yourself or interview your family members, describing the real story behind any of your family photos. You’ll enjoy gaining deeper insight into your photos and sharing the recordings with your family members (turning any photo into a voice-enriched video) so you can reminisce about times gone by. By recording your loved ones, those photo stories will turn into memories that your family will hold precious in the future.

“To record a story behind a photo, open the MyHeritage mobile app. Tap the Photos icon on the main screen, tap on any photo, and then tap the microphone icon to record the photo’s story.””

You can read more about the Photo Storyteller™ in the MyHeritage Blog post at, which includes the interesting background behind its release.

Have fun with the Photo Storyteller™!
