  1. A Favorite Photo Framed
    Do they have a favorite photo tucked away somewhere? If the photo is in poor condition or too small to display, have it digitally restored, enlarged, reprinted on archival paper and framed.
  2. A Stroll Down Memory Lane
    Take a drive or stroll through the neighborhood where the recipient grew up and ask them to share their memories. If the whole family comes along, rent a van and hand out an itinerary with the history and highlights.
  3. Archival Photo Albums
    Old family photos are best stored in albums free of acid and lignin (an acidic compound that gives trees their rigidity). Give the gift of an archival photo album to help them preserve their priceless old family photos.
  4. Old Family Photos
    Give the gift of a day going through old family photos together. Label, organize and learn about the stories and family history behind them. Finally, scan the photos so they can be preserved and shared among family members or upload to a family website for everyone to access!
  5. Record the Family History
    For a truly special gift, capture their family history in a book, on audio tape or in a Family Legacy Video. You can either do it yourself or hire a professional. Either way, knowing their family history will be preserved for younger generations to know is a gift guaranteed to move them deeply.
