We love our industry and look for opportunities to engage and share our stories with family historians, photo enthusiasts, DIY photo curators, photo detectives, story tellers. We collaborate with senior learning centers, memory care advocates, and anyone who cares about the story a picture can tell.

The pandemic has given us all time to reflect on the power of everyday objects to connect us with our own history. This course will show how to use Ponga to explore your history in artifacts using Ponga pictures so that stories are passed down with considerations for safe, long-term storage and legacy that can provide provenance and connection for future generations.

When we research genealogy, we are filling out our family trees with facts like births, marriages, and locations. This important work is even more exciting when you have old photographs of ancestors to explore at the same time. At Ponga, we started with the latest technologies to organize photographs by the faces of the people in each photo. We then created a way to add stories and memories.Powerful zoom features let you get into details, add comments with a few words, or a story in your own voice, drop in a snapshot, or paste a link to embed a home movie or oral history interview. Rich with stories and memories, your pictures become platters that can be privately shared, collecting anecdotes and revealing details. The connective tissue of these stories engages generations young and old with the family they share.
Barbara Tien, co-founder at Ponga.com, demonstrates how Ponga helps you organize your pictures quickly and easily so that you can use them to privately share stories with family and friends.The TMCC Library offers an Open Genealogy Lab each Friday, it's free, online and open to the public. TMCC Librarian Suzanne Malek welcomes in a new guest speaker as we explore a different genealogy topic each week
