Innovators' Showcase: Ponga at RootsTech 2022
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.
