Project Idea: Family Heirlooms


9 Sep 2010

3 Comments

Recently my husband’s grandmother moved into an assisted living facility, so we were all gathered together helping to clear out her home of the sixty some odd years of collectables, knick-knacks and family heirlooms she had gathered during her life.  My husband’s grandfather passed away when my husband was in high school, and was a major influence on his life.  It’s because of his grandfather that my husband enjoys gardening and woodworking.   When everyone in the family was encouraged to choose items to keep from the home, my husband made a straight line to the woodshop to gather up some of his grandfather’s tools.  Using the tools that his grandfather had used is an emotional connection for my husband. 

This got me thinking about the family keepsakes that I have from my own family.  I have a crystal ring box that was my great-grandmothers; I have antique plates decorating my kitchen that were my grandmother’s.  But the real treasures, those are still held by my own mother.  She has quilts that my great-grandmother loomed the fabric, and pieced together to form a pattern.  They are beautiful, and in an era where things are mass-produced and copied they are a little awe inspiring for me.  They are an inspiration for my own mother, who is passionate about quilting and sewing.

While you’re building your own family tree and sharing family stories why not take photographs of some of your family heirloom pieces, and then write a little about them and their history and share them on your page?  Invite and encourage your other family members to join you and share their own photographs and stories as well!  Perhaps you can even find an old photo of someone in your family using, or holding, the treasured item!

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).
