Despite all my good intentions of attending RootsTech 2016, soaking it all in, returning home, and blogging non-stop about all of the amazing things I saw there, the reality of it all is that I spent four solid days talking to vendors, catching up with old friends, and learning as much as I could about all of the new genealogy and technology tools and advancements that may be of value in genealogy research as well as family history presentation.
And it was just, plain, tiring! So here I am almost recovered, and ready to start sharing some posts about some of the neat products and services that were presented.
I’ll start with Memorable (www.GoMemorable.com), partly because they were just that – memorable – but also because they sent me a nice press release as a reminder 🙂 . The folks at Memorable offer scanning, sharing and storage solutions for any type of video media. They will convert your old tapes of just about any type to digital, and create sharable presentations so that your memories don’t just sit on a shelf. They offer quite an extensive list of services and were definitely worth looking into if you are thinking about your digital options.
Chicago Photo Restoration Firm at 26,000 Attendee RootsTech Conference
Memorable, a Chicago area digitization and cloud software company presented its newest technology including a new app for Apple’s latest tvOS platform at the largest genealogical and family history conference of 26,000 in Salt Lake City. Memorable founder Eugene Gekhter discovered that as few as 4% of American families have taken precautions to scan, backup and protect their still and moving images of their families and lives. Their advanced restoration and cloud saving work with photos, video and film for family, business and organizational memories was shown to visitors of the RootsTech Conference.
Memorable which has been in business for 15 years is demonstrating how families and organizations can truly protect their visual records from disaster including floods, fire and other natural and human disasters.
Memorable has developed a solution that would unite and automatically create clear chronologies for over a century of family photos and videos that any family can afford and especially all family members can use. He has worked with Harvard University, Joffrey Ballet as well as thousands of families..
