Bond with extended family members...
Through social media we remain in touch with relatives and friends, but a new approach to bond with extended family members is to create and build a family tree. Online access to your family tree page is restricted only to your extended family members which ensures that communication stays confidential and safe.
With extended family members scattered around the world, family tree enables far-flung family members to be discovered. Family ties deepen as a result of networking, sharing family photos and event sharing.
The family tree not only brings the family members closer but also promotes better understanding. The extended family members would always be there to provide emotional and physical support when there is a need for the same.
Start building your family tree!
First of all, set up the basic tree on one of the websites listed in 'Resources' below. Enter details of immediate family members and other family members known to you. Once their names and details are added to the tree, an automatic invite is received by them from the site through SMS and/or email.
The new invitees would then join in and invite other relatives known to them. Lo and behold, in no time the family tree would grow to a sizeable extent with all family members, near and far, discovering and re-discovering each other!
Convey your family history through memoirs, chronicles, old photos and letters...
Indian Memory Project would like you to connect to your family members and the world, through old photographs and hand-written letters, with accompanying stories/anecdotes that the photographs and letters relate to. Not only your family members who are far away would be pleased to see the archive, but for Indians at home and abroad it will be another glimpse into the life and times of a bygone era and times.
'My Life Chronicles' is a company that scripts your life story or family history or corporate history into a gripping narrative with text, anecdotes, photos etc. This is presented in the form of a hardbound volume which can be on your coffee table at home or may be gifted to close friends and relatives.
