The Archive

A digital and physical bank of the lives of humans told through personal video interviews.

The Past

Before writing was widespread people's stories were remembered through oral tradition. If stories were passed down it was often done inaccurately and lasted two generations at most.

The Present

Today, a tombstone, photo album, and a handful of stories passed down by close relations will survive only a handful of generations. To those that visit your grave, you'll just be a name and a date.

The Future

The Archive will safeguard stories both digitally and physically, for thousands of generations to come through personal recorded video interviews, and professionally crafted leather-bound books.

The Archive

The perfect way to remember someone you care about and a way for their story to be appreciated forever

Preserve what matter most

The Archive's mission is to preserve life stories for the future so others may learn from, and interact with, and appreciate their legacy.

Video Interviews

People in today's age are most engaged with video content. Yet, the passing down of stories has not caught up and is at risk of becoming obsolete.

Importance

Imagine you could sit down with your great-great-grandparents, heroes, or thought leaders of the day, listen to their advice and stories. Wouldn't that be valuable to everyone?

Kept Safe

All entries will be stored physically and digitally, with a copy of each existing in case one should be lost or damaged. The digital copy will also be stored offline.

"I don't believe my story is worth telling..."

The Archive's purpose is not to glorify the accomplished but rather to give everyone a chance to be remembered meaningfully into the future

"Why is The Archive a worthwhile alternative?"

All current forms of remembrance are technologically outdated. The alternative is the story and life being permanently lost over time

"Who can make a Submission to The Archive?"

We encourage anyone that wants to have lasting video memory of a life of someone dear to them, or has their own story to tell, to make a Submission

If you're curious about our questions, try and answer some with family or friends.
