Before the digital revolution, families saved an average of 3,000 photos in albums and shoe boxes, many representing the visual record of life-defining moments, milestones and special people.
Today we are drowning in an ocean of digital images. Gone are the days when grandchildren sat with elders to reminisce while turning the album pages. It's unreasonable to believe they will take the time to sift through tens of thousands of your digital photos to find the important ones, those that can give them a sense of who they are and what life was like in your time.
Our Legacy Photos component is a sanctuary where you can curate, preserve and share your highest-priority "legacy photos" in a format that helps future generations learn about their family history.
You can create unlimited photo albums to organize and view photos in beautiful slide shows. You can drag and drop photos inside albums to appear chronologically or otherwise.
Use your device microphone to record your voice while describing the story behind the photo. Discriminately share each photo with five audiences: Private, family, friends, family and friends or contribute to our public library.
You can also link ancestor photos to over 12 billion records in FamilySearch, the official Family Tree of humankind.
And you can share your Legacy Photos on popular social media platforms.
