Pittsburgh, PA—Forever, Inc., a permanent memory-keeping company, added a family research service to its memory–keeping suite of products and services. The new genealogy service is called Forever Family Research.
The addition of Forever Family Research is a significant step for Forever, as genealogical research is a much-needed service for any memory keeper. Moreover, to manage the new service, the company brought on expert researcher Keri Maurus. Genealogy has “consumed her life” for more than 20 years.
“Keri is not only a great researcher but also one who knows how to explain what she discovers about my family history in a very clear and organized way,” said Karen Bowser, a Forever client. “I just can’t say enough about her ability to help solve my history ‘brick walls.’”
“This company is all about memory keeping. I’m here to fill in the blanks for our clients and create the full picture of their history,” commented Maurus.
Forever Family Research
Forever clients can begin with a one-hour family research consultation or dive into a 3-, 6- or 12-month project plan. Each family research project plan includes the creation of a personal, private Forever Family Tree.
Furthermore, the service populates the tree with all of the client’s ancestors that the Forever research team discovers during the course of the project. What’s more, the team adds any documents they discover to the family tree and connects them to the relevant ancestor.
In addition to family tree updates, each month clients with a project plan receive a printable research report and have a face-to-face video call with a member of the Forever Family Research team detailing the month’s findings.
The Family Research team will also upload each genealogical document they uncover directly to that client’s Forever account. However, the client must have enough Forever permanent cloud storage available.
“This is an incredible opportunity for us,” said Glen Meakem, Forever’s founder and CEO. “Part of being a complete memory–keeping service is understanding our past. In order to properly tell our stories, we have to learn those of our ancestors.”
Forever offers a permanent memory–keeping solution in the Internet cloud where consumers and organizations can preserve and share precious memories. Moreover, the company guarantees that the memories stored with Forever permanent cloud storage will be preserved, protected and available for at least 100 years.
In addition to permanent cloud storage, the company also provides digital conversion; content organization; online sharing; succession planning; as well as metadata preservation. Other services comprise design software, digital art and online printing.
