The family story is not just names, dates and photos — there are numerous stories with each individual, family branch or surname.

everystory-logoThis new online site will help individuals organize and make available for sharing photos and the verbal information that goes with them. The site is now in ‘beta’ format and is free to anyone to use. It will eventually have a fee — but then you can still have 500 photos uploaded along with unlimited audio recordings uploaded. If you need to have more than 500 photos, the fee would be $3.99 a month for total unlimited.

What you will have is ‘Cloud-Based’ storage of the photos and vocal recordings. The recordings can be a couple minutes or hours worth as you or someone else tells about a family ancestor or discusses about one or many photos. With the sharing aspect, others can add to the information.

Keeping your scanned images in many different locations for safety reasons is always good. Review ‘EveryStory‘ and see if it can assist you in preserving your family history.
