About Our Sponsors


Collectionaire is a simple but smart cloud app for building the ultimate collection of a family’s history and best memories, including digital photo albums, home movies, digitized scrapbooks, slide shows, audio recordings, journals, etc.  It’s not a photo storage site, but instead a “hub” that complements sites like SmugMug, Flickr, Google Photos, Apple Photos, Vimeo, YouTube, and others by aggregating all your best memories into one easy-to-navigate site via your family tree.


The SHOTBOX is an all-in-one portable light studio that allows you to scan faster, capture amazing photos, and have fun unleashing your creative side all just using your smartphone. It’s easy to use, for imaging any item, heirloom or keepsake that you want to preserve. Use your smartphone to capture and the included tools to help make it beautiful. And just like that you are done. Shotbox also includes solutions for your whole home preservation system.
