Throughout our lives, we accumulate a lot of items—old journals, faded photos, treasured heirlooms, day-to-day documents. And in the wake of losing a loved one, it can be overwhelming to sift through all this information and try to preserve and share it.
As a way to help preserve these memories and artifacts, Permanent Legacy Foundation—an endowment-backed nonprofit cultural heritage organization—provides a service that allows people to upload document, photo, audio, and video files in a secure, permanent place for current and future generations to enjoy and cherish. Living family can also upload and share these important files with each other.
Permanent.org is integrating with FamilySearch Memories. FamilySearch users will be able to connect their FamilySearch account to create a private permanent archive for any members of their family in their family tree. The first gigabyte of storage is free; additional gigabytes have a one-time fee of $10 per gigabyte.
If you are a public helper, Permanent.org gives you an additional resource with expanded capabilities for your patrons to consider.
