Do our family members even how to access these photos? They knew they could pull out the old trusty photo album when they wanted to reminisce. I have had computers to break down, flash drives to malfunction and cd-roms to wear out. I found a way my family can access all my photos and no matter where they live.
I have access to free unlimited online storage with my own private Heritage Makers account. I store copies of historical documents there as well. I am able to download high resolution photos or drag my photos over to make beautiful projects like storybooks and calendars within HM. A free Basic Heritage Makers account has limited storage.
I love it because I upload my photos to my HM account right from my camera, and when I need one for a blog post, I can easily find it in one of my categorized folders. When I visit family members who have old photographs, I simply take a shot with my digital camera, and they do not have to worry about being without the photo while I make copies.
I have been using this service since 2007, and it has saved me a great deal of time.
