Help Grandma and Grandpa

Turn your family history into a hands-on project! Help grandma and grandpa (or anyone else) recall old memories, reminisce about their lives, and recount their stories. Write memories down. Record audio. Upload or scan photos and documents. Start capturing your own family history!

Prompts are questions that act as helpful memory triggers. They are designed to uncover dormant memories or elicit stories about specific experiences, people, or places.

Cues are impactful historical facts, events, and cultural phenomena (e.g. songs) designed to trigger Memories.

Understand the defining spirit and mood of the time in which a Memory took place with cultural snapshots (hit songs, famous events, news, etc.).

Jot down a few key words about a Memory as soon as it pops into your mind, so that you can remember to expand upon it later. Use MindPopsTM to quickly capture fleeting thoughts and fully flesh them out later.

No longer do you need to squint at your screen or zoom in. Easily change the text-size of your Memories to make them easier to read.
