Researching Family History to Meet the Needs of Your Family

Every family’s story is unique and that becomes apparent through family research. Look up immigration records, military service, or letters describing their travels from one part of Canada or the U.S. to another. You’ll see hopes, dreams, and challenges unique to them.

I’m passionate that families chronicle their past and present stories to preserve their voices and teach others in the future.

That’s why I use the platform FOREVER®, the only guaranteed permanent storage solution that I’ve seen in the nearly 30 years of my career as a photo coach.

Scroll to the end of this post to contact me for a virtual tour.

Read on for more benefits of FOREVER® but let’s dig more into the idea of researching your family’s history, and what it means for your specific family. Here’s a peek into my family research captured on FOREVER®.

Who’s in Your Family?

Sounds silly because it’s so obvious, right?

Well, let’s say you’re with your spouse and you’ve got a couple or three children. There are only four or five of you. Slam dunk in knowing about your family history.

Dig back a bit.

How much do you know about your parents and grandparents? Do you know where they met, and how they met?

Do your kids know the answers to those questions? They may not.

Now, let’s add a twist.


Who’s in Your Blended Family?

I have friends who’ve built wonderfully loving families through adoption and remarriage.

If you have one child who’s adopted, they have a birth family who you may or may not know–but they have a history. You can see how the branches quickly spread.

Simple family tree
Imagine how a family with one adopted child can spread the family tree. Imagine, a birth child or two and an adopted child or two

I know a family who has four adopted children from three different birth families. Imagine all the people they could include in their family research.

You can see how your family tree isn’t just one straight trunk with many branches but becomes quite a network of people and personalities.


Benefits of Using FOREVER®

You can make researching and chronicling your family history quite simple or expand it by going back generations.

FOREVER® is a platform that allows you to easily organize simple documentation and also lets you create a structure where you can go in-depth.


Use FOREVER® to upload all of your most meaningful memories into one place.

Digitize memories from all your older files like traditional scrapbook albums, VHS tapes, slide shows, 8 mm home movies, and more.

Upload all of the photos and videos from your phone and other electronic devices.

Store old and new files in one place called your Library. FOREVER® is guaranteed storage for a lifetime, plus 100 years and beyond.

This is  a peek at my parents’ album.

From your Library, you can create Albums and sub-albums while tagging your photos.

And what about all those duplicate and near-duplicate photos?

Using FOREVER® lets you easily see how many pictures you’ve taken of the same event. How many pics do you snap during wedding receptions or during 4th of July Fireworks displays?

You’ll see them side by side in the FOREVER Library and you’ll be able to confidently delete the ones that are all-too-similar and you’ll know what types of photos and videos you’ll want to have for the future.


Take the FOREVER® Virtual Tour

I’d enjoy the opportunity to show you FOREVER® in action. I’ve used the platform for several years and I know the company’s leadership quite well.

FOREVER® ranks high in trust among its users and I have total trust in the ability to deliver on its promises.

Here are 2 easy ways to look into it more:

  • Sign up for 2 free GB of storage space. You’ll be able to upload quite a few photos and see how to store your prized pics in albums.
  • Join me on a tour. In just about 20 minutes, I’ll show you the key features and even wow you with how you can turn your digital inventory of memories into printed photo books.

Here’s what a recent tour visitor said:

“This blows my mind! I never before asked for a tour because I THOUGHT I already knew what it was. But I had NO IDEA how cool it is!”
