Heirloom Curators

Curators of family heirlooms now have a rich set of digital tools to help capture the love, history, and provenance that make their inherited treasures so special.

How It Works

  • Upload your pictures — Ponga starts organizing your photos by people’s faces.
  • A Gallery lets you put names to the faces you recognize — Ponga creates albums and labels.
  • Explore pictures and add background stories — Ponga selections let you use words, pictures, voices, documents and more to capture memories.
  • Invite siblings, cousins, parents, and children to contribute their own memories, connected and in context.
