An Enduring Gift

"History is a gallery of pictures in which there are few originals and many copies." - Alexis de Tocqueville

As we go through life we become more aware of our connections to the past. Community and family history tells us things about ourselves that we may never have realized.

The mission of YourArchivist is to help people digitally perserve and share the physical evidence of community and family history for current and future generations.

The technology is here, now, and affordable.

Stories are told by old photographs, albums, yearbooks, newsclips, letters, and manuscripts, which are slowly falling to pieces in attics, basements, and closets. Paper does not last very long.

YourArchivist will save these treasures for you. Here's how we do it:

  • We scan or photograph original artifacts.
  • We catalog and help you safely store the originals.
  • We help you organize the digital images.
  • We create custom, personal, and highly functional websites from digital images.
The digital copies YourArchivist creates become secure websites you can share with whomever you like.  Forever.

A unique feature of YourArchivist websites is that they are "living archives". Guests can register and add their own personal comments or anecdotes. These become part of the archive and can be seen and searched by any visitors. Forever.

YourArchivist philosophy: Take advantage of the most recent low cost technological developments in data storage and the internet. Keep the services and methods simple, affordable, and portable.

We are careful, fastidious, and efficient. Close collaboration with our customers is what guarantees satisfaction.
