That's all too true, Kathleen! It's an ongoing job; maybe other family members can pitch in and contribute too?

Great story Kathleen. Taking notes is so important and can be a collaborated activity with family. Sometimes you can find the one person who likes to talk and knows many bits of information and would be happy to share them with you.

Great reason to organize the photo is also to collect the stories behind the photo, the keepy app let's you digitize the photo and send to you family to record their video comments with stories you will want to keepy for ever
