Rediscover your Family History Through Pictures


FGusa3 300x161 - "Family Pictures USA" on PBS: Uncover your family history stored in photo albums



If you are into genealogy, a photographer or are your family’s historical archivist, see why we are raving on the new PBS series “Family Pictures USA. Explore the stories which connect us.


The adage “A picture is worth a thousand words” comes to life in this new PBS TV series to convey how a single photograph provides meaning to narrate a family’s past.



The Family Pictures USA Story


Family Pictures USA is a documentary-style magazine show, filmed before a live studio audience, that journeys through a rapidly changing landscape where the foundations of a familiar and idealized “AMERICA” are being transformed.

 


As ordinary Americans begin to discover their hidden family histories, stashed in boxes in dusty attics or on old floppy disks and new smartphones, they will unpack more than artifacts and ephemera.

 


They will re-meet their relatives and old friends —fascinating characters, brought back to life by images and stories —giving them a new home in our collective consciousness, and introducing us to a more nuanced and diverse story of our common history, shared present and evolving future.

 


Family Pictures USA will mine this rich treasure trove of personal narratives to reveal roots, connections, and provocative parallels that will surprise us and illuminate the path toward a new America for a 21st Century.

Excerpt from Episode 50: ScanMyPhotos with Mitch Goldstone



From The Photo Detective Podcast

Scanning photos can be tedious work especially when you’re digitizing slides. Imagine that there was a service that could do it for you. I’m not advocating sending out your original 19th-century photos for scanning but there no reason why you couldn’t use a service for late 20th snapshots and for all those slides. That’s where ScanMyPhotos.com comes in.

 


 

My guest today is Mitch Goldstone. He is co-founder and CEO of ScanMyPhotos.com which has professionally preserved 600 million happy memories, family milestones, and special events for its customers since 1990. Mitch is a well-known leader in the photo imaging and tech industry who is regularly profiled by the national news media for his innovations and advocacy issues.

 


We chatted about scanning. Everything from how it works to their super-fast turnaround. Mitch and I had some photo related ideas for your family reunion. It’s the perfect event for photo identification gathering.

In the aftermath of a disaster, insurance usually covers the replacement of possessions that have a monetary value yet items with emotional value can never be replaced. Those shoeboxes and albums of family photos tucked away in closets and attics are often overlooked until it is too late. Family photos can also be lost due to neglectful storage, sun exposure, water damage, deterioration, and even mischievous young children.

“Preparing for a natural disaster is a year-round imperative. In an instant, when disaster strikes, families risk losing their precious photo memories. Family photographs document lives in a way that material items cannot. Once those photos are destroyed, that part of the family history is lost forever,” said Goldstone.


There is an urgency to preserve photo memories today so it is enjoyed for generations to come. The challenge was the cost and time investment to have it professionally scanned and digitized to post online on sharing sites like, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook or on tablets like Apple’s iPad (r).
