Organize Your Photos Now, Don't Wait For The Next Stage In Life.
Posted: March 1, 2019, 4:07am By: Katelyn Ray

All too often, we get caught up in waiting for the next stage in our life. We think that when we graduate, when we get married, when we have a stable job, when we have children, when we retire... THEN we will be happy and be able to enjoy life more. But in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” Our lives, and often our best memories, are made up of all the small moments that make up the big picture.

“Of all my grandmother’s losses from Hurricane Harvey, the old family photos have been among the hardest to accept, both for my grandmother and for the entire family.”

Can You Watch Your Home Movies?
Posted: May 24, 2018, 9:15am By: Katelyn Ray

Remember those old home videos that everyone used to make? I’m not talking about the little clips we take on our phones occasionally. I’m talking about the often long and random videos of anything and everything.

We probably all have some of these old videos sitting in some box in the corner of the attic or garage. There are probably some incredible, funny, and random memories mixed in there. But most of us do not enjoy any of them, or even remember what we have recorded, because we no longer have the equipment to view them.

A New Year's Resolution Your Children Will Love
Posted: January 18, 2017, 5:26am By: Dorothy Tucker

Most of us start a new year with great intentions. We want to become healthier, so we plan meals and go to the gym. We want to become more organized, so we buy a planner and make “To Do” lists. We set goals for better health, greater productivity, peace of mind- goals that will benefit us in some way.

Home Movie Day 2016
Posted: November 3, 2016, 1:47am By: Michele Doyle

I attended my first Home Movie Day [HMD] last month in Raleigh, NC. Home Movie Day is celebrated in October around the world. It started in 2002 as a celebration of amateur home movies.  It is an opportunity for families to share their memories and their stories with others. Sponsored by AVGeeks, the film program at NCSU, and the North Carolina State Archives, HMD was wonderful experience that allowed many families to see film that hadn’t been shown in decades. Not only did we see these films projected on the big screen, but through the generosity of AVGeeks, the films were digitized.

Your Heritage Photo - Getting Started
Posted: May 23, 2016, 2:31am By: Michele Doyle

Many of us have a box of old photos sitting in an attic or closet. Inside that box are photos of our grandparents, great-grandparents or other extended family members. For some of us, those are the only memories we have of our ancestors who are no longer with us. The photos in those boxes are fading as rapidly as our memories, yet there they sit. Why? Because we don't know what to do with them.

If you are the owner of one or more of those boxes and you have a desire to honor your ancestors and preserve their memories, you've come to the right place. During this blog series we will be providing step-by-step instructions on organizing, preserving and sharing your Heritage Photos.
