Opening a shoebox of old photographs is like unlocking the door to your personal history, flooding your senses with the moments (and the occasional misguided outfit) that shaped who you are. It’s amazing what old photos bring back.
That’s assuming, of course, that you can find the shoebox somewhere in the depths of your garage. Or it’s not in your great aunt’s closet. Oooor, it hasn’t been lost to a flood in your basement.
Our precious memories deserve better than this, don’t they? Don’t we all want to honor our old family photos, especially ones of friends and relatives who are no longer with us?
Time to bring your past into the present. 1,000 Memories wants to help you get your photos out of shoeboxes and help you scan, organize and share them with your family and friends. Think of it like a “Facebook for yesteryear”— scan and upload your pics, then date and tag them with the names.
Add stories, audio, video and memorable quotes too, and 1,000 Memories will arrange it all in a beautiful layout for each family member so you can string together your family history. The best part is everyone can upload their own personal collections.
