Calling all family historians! Mylio is delighted to be a sponsor and exhibitor at RootsTech 2023, the world’s largest genealogy conference, happening March 2-4. The popular global virtual event – with over 200 classes, 150+ exhibitors, and inspiring speakers and storytellers – will also have an in-person experience this year in Salt Lake City, UT.
At the Salt Lake City show, Mylio team members will present live classes about how to gather, organize, and preserve your family’s photo legacy.
With Mylio Photos, family historians can gather, organize, and protect their family photos, videos, digitized historic media, and documents. In the process, they are building an easily accessible, universal photo library and family archive that’s well-organized and will be preserved for generations to come.
Online access to RootsTech 2023 is free. Register here to watch on-demand and livestream classes and download educational content. (If you’re near Salt Lake City during the show dates, stop by and say hello at Booth 428.)
Gathering and protecting your family’s digital legacy
Here’s a sample of the type of classes our team will teach at the show. In “Faces, Places, Dates, and Text: Why Metadata Matters,” visual storyteller Rich Harrington reminds us that our digital files contain our family history, but asks, “how easy are they to find and share?” The class describes how metadata makes it easy to locate important photos, videos, and documents. By embedding rich details about our files, we can ensure that future generations can find and enjoy them, he adds.
The most direct path to our family memories is through our photos
At Mylio, we believe your family memories are valuable and worth preserving. In a recent blog post, our CEO and founder, David Vaskevitch, shared his personal experience. “Just before Covid hit, my mother passed away, and that brought a new appreciation for the past and for the memories that bring it back to life,” he said. “For me, the most direct path to my memories is through my photos. I’ve found myself returning to the pictures of my mother as a child, but also the pictures of my children — and even the scans I made of their report cards and their “art” — and all the occasions, sad as well as happy, that mark our days.”
We invite you to try Mylio Photos free for 30 days to see for yourself how the app can work for organizing and preserving your most precious family memories.
