Bringing Your Family’s History to Life

This is an exciting time to research your family’s history. Here’s why.

We can easily look back more than a century and find photos and documents of relatives we never knew, and we can look ahead to store our memories for the next 100 years and longer.

Imagine one of your future family members doing family research and comparing Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with:

  • still photos from the 1930s and 1940s,
  • your photos and videos from the early 2000s,
  • and media files of their Thanksgiving and Christmas in the 2130s and 2140s.

Will turkey still be the popular main dish? Will there be football games played and how will uniforms look? This is my grandfather in his high school uniform in 1924.

Let’s see how our memories have gone from written memories to more visually appealing and true-to-life.

From still life to movement

Photography was still a relatively new technology as the 1890s turned into the early 1900s.

Most photographs were family portraits with people posing stiffly in their finest clothes. Then the growth of photojournalism happened.

Here’s something fascinating about newspapers. The first photo used with a news story was in the French periodical L’Illustration in 1848. Yet it wasn’t until 1919 that American papers started using photos regularly, according to the Library of Congress.

After World War II, movement started happening.

American families began taking photos and home movies of everyday life and events like vacations and holidays with not just still photos but Super 8 home movies and slide shows.

The memories we captured became more multi-dimensional and photos became easier to take and develop.

Remember the Polaroid camera?

And VHS tapes?

Now, we can take hundreds and thousands of photos and videos and share them instantly thanks to our digital era.

We take so many photos and videos that most of us are overwhelmed and don’t really know what we have.

However, it’s easier than ever to permanently store our memories thanks to FOREVER®, the all-in-one memory storage solution that’s guaranteed safe.

I’ve been a photo coach for almost 30 years and it’s the best photo storage and organizing solution I’ve seen.
