What is Family
Every family is steeped in memories of triumph and loss, sacrifice and love. But rarely are these stories woven together in a way that captivates this generation and inspires the next.
Family heritage management is the practice of discovering, archiving, and transforming your family's history into an asset that provides continuous value and inspiration for your family and its future generations.
How is a family strengthened by being connected to its heritage?
Your family's legacy is what makes your name uniquely strong and marks your family's continuing impact. It transcends time, linking the past and future generations together in a bond of love and unwavering principles.

Sadly, the legacies of our family members are too often lost and forgotten.
With medals forgotten in attics, pictures destroyed by fire or rot, and with rich life experiences lost to failing memories and illness, many families are never able to fully know their heritage or the legacy of a loved one.
These often-lost heirlooms, keepsakes, and memories are known as as "unmanaged heritage," and they are uniquely vulnerable to loss, as they are largely intangible and unsustainable.

How Your Reclaimed Heritage Impacts Your Family
Connecting with your family's legacy and sharing it with others has a powerful impact throughout your family.
You Create a Stronger Family Bond
We've seen the heritage management process draw families closer together as they peel through the layers of family history, revealing not only a rich legacy, but a strong mutual respect for one another.
Drawing from a renewed pride in their family legacy, your loved ones:
Build a stronger family support system.
Quell old grievances in favor of mutual respect and love.
Realize the value of being a part of one another's lives.
You Inspire Future Generations
Your heritage project doesn't only enrich your immediate family and the one whom you may be honoring with it. This also inspires your family's future generations through a bond of shared values.
By drawing upon the lessons learned from their family legacy, future generations:
Feel a stronger connection to their family and lineage.
Recongize the value of the life lessons and wisdom from their elders.
Draw strength and inspiration from their lineage in hard times.
You Preserve Foundational Values
By rediscovering your family's heritage, the values and principles that imbued your loved ones with strength and guided them through life are passed down and become generational bedrock of invaluable principles.
By preserving your family's foundational values, you provide your family with:
A shared source of strength and emotional renewal.
A value system that enriches their family bond with one another.
A strong code of moral ethics that will guide them throughout life.
