Online Help for The Story of Your Family

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Keeping the story...of your family. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. Computers and the Internet have become indispensable tools for those interested in genealogy. A Web site called TreasuryofHeritage.com aims to do more. Co-founder Dennis Stack had spent two decades in the financial services industry...helping to plan estates....when after suffering the loss of a parent and the devastation of the 9/11 attacks...he wanted to give a gift to his clients...


"That would tell them there's more to life than just money. That life experiences matter. "


So he created biography kits to help them collect and preserve their family stories. The effort migrated into a business that is now on the Web...at TreasuryofHeritage.com. The basic version with 25 megabytes of media storage is free. The 500 megabyte Family Storykeeper version is priced at about 8 dollars a month and can be shared by family members around the world. You can find us at BootCamp.com. I'm Fred Fishkin.
