Try animating your old family photos

MyHeritage just released a new video animation feature. It allows you to create video reenactments of family members by uploading photographs of them to the MyHeritage site.

Hannah Meyer. Circa 1920.

I uploaded a scanned photograph of my second-great grandmother, Hannah Meyer, to the MyHeritage site. This is the animated video reenactment of her below.

What do you think? Is it realistic or robotic? Do you think this technology can help us to have a better sense of what our ancestors were like?

To upload your old photos of family members to the MyHeritage site, and for any questions that you may have about this new feature, choose this link here:
