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.


We’re stoked to help you discover your family stories this month! We’re on a mission to help you preserve those stories with life like video quality at a reasonable price. Our enhancement kit and interview guide make it easy and fun to capture a relative’s story with just the phone in your pocket. We’ll hand-edit your footage and create a ~45 minute HD movie of your loved one’s life, a treasured family keepsake forevermore.

DNA Results Analysis

Know My Roots Genetic Genealogy is dedicated to assisting adoptees and those with unknown parentage in finding biological family through traditional genealogical research and DNA testing.  New opportunities for finding family are available via testing companies, which have created databases for the purpose of connecting individuals with others who share significant DNA percentages. DNA “matches” within these databases indicate close  biological relationships – from parents and siblings, to 1 – 6th cousins. Numerous cases of unknown paternity and adoption have been solved through these methods.
