We believe in family

We believe...

That experience is a great asset to protect.

That sharing and creating history bonds families together.

Knowing family stories makes us happier on our journey.

Family is any intimate group of individuals bonded by love.

Archiving experiences and stories brings to life a great treasure of future generations.

Who is this for?

Family Historian

Regardless of age, you are usually the one everyone calls on when there is a family history question. You are the keeper of the records.

Saving history comes natural for you because you inherenty feel it's great value, even if it doesn't seen valuation today.

You have stories, photos, docs and records saved in several places but find it time consuming to manage and could use help.

The patient’s family

We all age. You've seen aging happen as you have watched your parent or family member start to lose their memory.

A lifetime of experience starts to erode from access. Memory loss is the long crisis and you feel it mounting.

You want to save these memories for the future, but more importantly you want to bond with your family before it's too late.

Our experiences

bring power not only to the words stored in an archive but also to the foundation of society, FAMILIES
