Your Legacy

Every photograph captures a moment in time creating a record of important events, people, and places in your life. When edited, organized, and creatively presented, these images are more than a chronology of your memories, they become the foundation of a larger and more important story.

Combined with other illustrative materials – such as maps, family trees, and documents, and woven together with well researched social history, videos, and audio recordings, a compelling chronicle of your life and family history emerges.

At PWFAS your photos and memorabilia are transformed into enhanced digital assets, preserved and assembled into a unique and important multi-media family collection to be shared and treasured by future generations. Your descendants will have a clear understanding of their personal heritage and can contribute their own memories, so your gift continues as an enduring living legacy.
