Many free tools exist to help families organize and share pictures online. Some tools organize family pictures through a family tree, others provide a place to store and share pictures in folders, and some resources let you organize pictures by location.
Organize Histories and Pictures on a Time Line
One available option at OurStory.com lets you organize your photos in a unique way. You can organize your family photos on a time line and highlight stories from your life or your family’s over the years.
You can also use the service to help you or your family write personal histories through a series of “interview” type questions. With the service, you could create a “This is Your Life” storybook for a friend or relative.
Another neat feature is that you can embed (include) your time line in a website or blog that you’ve created.
Ideas for Using a Family Picture Time Line
Some fun uses for the tool include creating various time lines for different events:
- Time line of pictures for your children as they grow up
- Time line of an ancestor’s life
- Time line with pictures from your whole family
- Time line of a special vacation or vacations
You can use the service to collaborate with your family members to create time lines for your parents, grandparents, or any ancestor you choose.
