Get your memories out of the shoebox

Admit it. You’ve got tons of photos, keepsakes and documents just sitting in a shoebox on the top shelf of the closet. Those precious memories deserve to see the light of day, as well as be shared and remembered. Luckily there’s a website that allows you to upload and catalog all of your precious memories, so they can take center stage and live on, just like they deserve.

Time to bring your past into the present. 1000memories 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 1000memories will arrange it all in a beautiful layout for each family member, so you can string together your family history and everyone can upload their own personal collections.
