Hello Design Dazzle friends! My name is Rachel and I work with Toni to bring you fab ideas! I wanted to share with you an amazing site that will quite literally change your life.
StoryWorth. The easiest way to record your family stories!
I am 30 years old and all of my grandparents have been gone for several years. I miss their hugs and love, but mostly I miss all that I could have learned from them. I want to know more about where I came from. I want to know more about the legacy that was left for me.
Rachel and her Grandpa
As I have thought about the all stories I could have heard, then assumingly laughed and cried about, I want to make sure my children don’t have the same misfortune. I want my children to know of all the happiness, life lessons, humorous antidotes, and character-building stories of loved ones.
This wonderful site will help you record those stories to be retold and reread for generations to come!
It is set up very simple and easy to follow. StoryWorth will do all the hard work for you. Each week a storyteller receives an email with a question that will prompt a story, a story that will inevitably become a family treasure. Storytellers can respond directly on the site, by email, or by telephone! (Transcribing available!) Perfect for those who aren’t as proficient on a keyboard! The makers of StoryWorth can randomly assign questions or they can be customized to fit your family.
These stories are kept private (by invite only) and in one place! Then all the stories can be compiled into a book, complete with family photos, that will become the pride and joy of your coffee table. What a genius idea! I have already begun recording my stories and have invited my parents and siblings to do the same. I want a whole library of stories!
If you value preserving memories and family stories, you should definitely check out StoryWorth.

Hello friends, Toni here adding my two cents. I was introduced to StoryWorth at the Roots Tech Conference last year. I was immediately impressed with all that StoryWorth was about. I can’t wait to get my own stories going for my family! This is a great site to really get your family history preserved!
The first-annual RootsTech Innovator Showdown was won by StoryWorth, winning both first prize and the People’s Choice award, and claiming a purse of $15,000 + $10,000 for a cool $25,000. RootsTech is a global conference hosted by FamilySearch that I attended in February. It was such an honor to go as a media rep.
Check out our StoryWorth interview below with Nick and Krista, founders of StoryWorth.
If you are into family history, this is the place to be – Rootstech. It is held annually in Salt Lake City usually in February. People from all over the world attend. There are hundreds of classes to choose from.
