I want toscan in jpeg from my Brother MFC L 8850

Customer Question
I want toscan...

I want toscan in jpeg from my Brother MFC L 8850 printer/scanner to my Ancestry.com on my Mac computer. Can you advise?

Technician's Assistant: What Brother model do you have?

The MFC-L 8850 CDW

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Brother printer?

I think I did it many many months ago, but have forgotten the process

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on your model

Good question I don't really know. Please be patient, I am 82 and the bulb is beginning to dim a bit.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Not right off hand, thank you.
