Heirshare is a full-service company established to help families conserve historical items and share them with other family members. A representative from HeirShare will come to your location to review the material that you have and discuss the file organization with you. We can set up our equipment at your location or we can bring your material back to our workshop to complete the project. Our objective is to organize your material, store it in the proper containers to preserve it as long as possible and create an electronic backup, designed for browsing by you and your other family members.
We will organize the material according to your wishes. Alternately we will organize it according to industry best practices and will apply that organization to the material itself and the electronic copies. We will return the material to you properly stored in “acid-free” containers (folders, sleeves, and storage boxes) that are designed to preserve the material for the longest time possible.
In addition, HeirShare will deliver a flash or hard drive as a backup for you to store safely. HeirShare will create a “cloud” storage location for the files so that you can give other family members permission to view them.
So your final product is:
HeirShare will create digital images as backup of your documents, letters, certificates, etc. as well as your family pictures in JPG format or PDF format. We will create digital photographs of three dimensional artifacts, heirlooms, furniture, etc. We will recommend a manner of organization based on the items provided and an initial interview. + LEARN MORE
HeirShare will provide the proper storage materials and will organize them to match the organization of the digital images. We will use acid-free, buffered and unbuffered folders, envelopes, clear sleeves and storage boxes to assure preservation of the items for the longest time possible.

HeirShare will provide a copy of the digital images on your cloud storage site or we will create one for you. You will be able to share specific files, folders or all files with other family members by granting access to the cloud storage site. This will give your family the ability to browse these files in order to learn more about the family’s history. + LEARN MORE
