Create Your Own Family Archive


With processes and materials used by the National Archives and Smithsonian Institution

Your home and life are full of memories. Your own. Your children's. Your parents'. Your grandparents'. That box of love letters your dad wrote your mom when he was in the Army. The old, dusty binder of photos from your European ancestors. The kids' trophies from last week's sporting event. These memories, new and old, are important to you and your family. But will they survive for future generations to enjoy?

At familyarchives.com, we believe that your family memories should be preserved and stored to last a lifetime, or several...to be enjoyed by everyone who touches your life.

As you explore this site, you'll learn how to collect, preserve and store documents, images, mementos, home movies, digital files — even stories of loved ones — using the exact same practices and materials used by the nation's leading institutions to protect and preserve presidential papers, historic documents of the first moon landing, precious turn-of-the-century photos and recordings. And now, for the first time, they're available for you to build your own family archive.

You'll find everything you need to create an incredible, in-depth archive and more, because your best memories are also your most valuable ones, and they should be preserved, to be shared and enjoyed for every generation in your family. Get Started >
