Coming Together Through Family Memories

Coming Together Through Family Memories

By Veronica Studt

I love FOREVER Conversion services! I was able to take the traditional 12x12 scrapbooks that I have on my bookshelves at home and mail them to FOREVER to have those pages safely converted into digital images.

Of my 6 children and 2 grandchildren, I always wondered who would get the family photos after I was gone. Now, they can ALL have access to those same pages! I am so grateful and glad that this is done. Some of my photos go back to the 1840’s!

I attended the Tampa p2P Live! event in Florida this February, and while there I found out that I had a 100-year-old Aunt who lived nearby.  While I was in Florida, my images from the scrapbooks and slides I had converted were just starting to come into my FOREVER Account.  I now had a way to share our family photos with my Aunt, right on my computer! She was so amazed and happy that I came to show her our family - whose story is safely stored at FOREVER.com.

The story continues.  Auntie told me that I had a cousin who also lived nearby. My cousin and I arranged to meet for lunch and I was able to share the family treasure with her from my phone because I have the FOREVER app!  I was able to recreate the whole digital book and my cousin was able to pick and choose the pages she wanted for her family. We all have the same grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins!  How amazing is all that? And because I have the link to my album in a shareable format, her mother (my Aunt), is now viewing the book as well. She is retired and really getting into scrapbooking!

So thank you, FOREVER, for doing a great job with my albums! To everyone out there, try FOREVER Conversion Services! Especially NOW, while conversion boxes are on sale!

P.S. Since this post was written, I was able to reach a brother in Virginia, whose wife saw my story on Facebook, and now another cousin in Connecticut. My order came last night and I wish I took a photo of my husband viewing the digital storybook with layflat pages! He loved it!
