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.
Ponga runs in your browser and gives you a way to organize your photos so that you can use them to privately connect family and friends as you collect research, crowdsource stories, and curate your family legacy.
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
