Preserve Your Treasured Family Stories

27 Jul 2010


My family recently lost some cherished members to cancer and so, as most families do, we gathered together to celebrate their lives and to share old memories.  Like most family get-togethers of this nature, our reunion was marked with laughter, tears and stories about each other and our lost loved ones.

Since I’ve been building our family tree using Mundia, I was sure to take careful notes during these story sharing sessions and I’ve enjoyed posting these family stories on Mundia for even more family to share, and enjoy!

Of course I wish that I hadn’t waited for a death in the family to start gathering these stories, but sometimes that’s just how life seems to work, isn’t it?

I believe that photos, and stories from our families are some of our most cherished treasures, and to me using Mundia to share these treasures with family near and far makes the experience even more special.

Post one of your family stories on Mundia today and invite your relatives to add comments and share their cherished family memories!

Introducing Photo Tagging and Importing!

12 Jul 2010


As you know, we are working hard to make Mundia better, and to add new features that make the site easier to use.  The latest addition to the site is the Photo Tagging feature – you can now tag your photos and each time you tag an individual, you can send them an email via Mundia to invite them to view the photos you’ve uploaded.

In addition to tagging, we’ve now added the ability to import your photos directly from Facebook.  Import all your Facebook photo albums, or select the ones you’d like to share with family on Mundia!  When you import and share photos on Mundia, you must make sure that you have the consent of any living family members and friends in the photos (or, in the case of photos which include people under 16, the consent of their parent or guardian).
