The idea behind Family History Notebook is a simple one: You should be able to keep your family's entire story in one secure place. These days you can find fragments of your family story on numerous research websites, in microfilm collections, in boxes of old family journals and photos, and with your living relatives. All these pieces are stored in different places; some of those places aren’t as secure as you might like. Your home is a safe place to store hard copies of everything—until your research is met with a house fire, a flood, or a small child with a permanent marker.
Family History Notebook solves those problems. You can store your family history research in FHnotebook and organize it so you can always find the story fragment you’re looking for. You can access your FHnotebook from anywhere with an internet connection, and getting your research into FHnotebook is easy. The methods you can use are as diverse as the research sources you use.
- Family History Web Clipper: With our web clipper, you can pull research you do online into your FHnotebook. Whether you’re using a cemetery registry, a birth record search, or a general genealogy search engine, you can compile all your findings straight into your FHnotebook.
- Family History Box: FHbox is a program you install to your personal computer. It keeps a copy of your FHnotebook (so you can access your information if the internet is unavailable), and you can drag and drop files from your computer into the FHbox. Once there, the files copy to your online FHnotebook as soon as you have an internet connection.
- Family History Media: FHmedia is an exciting use of smartphone technology. With this free app for Android and Apple mobile devices, you can easily digitize hard copies of certificates, census records, microfilm, and more. You can also record audio and video interviews, and take photos of important family history sites! Then you upload everything you collect with FHmedia straight to your FHnotebook account.
I wish I’d had something like this a year ago. I’d started recording my grandma telling stories about when she and my grandpa were just starting out, about how she taught my uncle to say “duck,” about eating ice cream for breakfast—wonderful stories from my family’s past. Keeping track of the recordings what a nightmare, and after she passed away a few months later, I became even more frightened that I’d lose the files with her voice preserved in them.
Those recordings (now safely stored) were also hard to share with others, but that was part of the point of recording my grandma’s stories. I have cousins, siblings, aunts, and uncles who would love to have those stories. With Family History Notebook, I can easily share the files with anyone who has an email address. With a free FHnotebook account, I can share it with one person; if I pay even for the cheapest subscription, I can share it with as many people as I’d like to.
Family History Notebook makes the process of assembling, preserving, and sharing your family story a seamless, simple process. Best of all, you can get started and try it out for free: up to 100 documents’ worth of space is all yours, free for as long as you use FHnotebook. Register now and start saving your family story.
