;Pittsburgh, PA—Forever, Inc., held its first–ever annual Forever Family History virtual event on February 20, 2021. Forever is a memory-keeping solution where family historians, genealogists as well as photo organizers save, organize and share their memories for generations.
More than 4,000 Forever clients and ambassadors from all over the world registered for the one-day virtual event. Moreover, they gathered virtually to learn how to preserve and celebrate their family memories.
For the past several years in February, Forever has partnered with FamilySearch to sponsor RootsTech; it is among the largest family celebrations and family history events. However, the in-person RootsTech event was cancelled this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
First Forever Family History Virtual Event
“We were really disappointed that we weren’t able to travel to Salt Lake City and participate in RootsTech this year,” said Mona Rau, manager of Events at Forever. “We will miss the opportunity to connect in person with thousands of genealogists and memory keepers; and to share why Forever is so important for preserving their family history. But we decided not to let the pandemic stop us from hosting our own virtual family history event!”
Forever livestreamed its genealogy-focused event to more than 4,000 registered attendees across the world. Attendees to the all-digital event tuned in as a community to engage with each other and with the Forever home office in celebration of their family history.

It ended with a session featuring Glen Meakem, Forever’s founder and CEO. Meakem discussed the company’s vision for the future.
“Our mission at Forever is to help millions of people around the globe preserve and celebrate their family histories,” said Meakem. “At the Forever Family History Virtual Event, we have the unique opportunity to connect with our most passionate clients and ambassadors to celebrate those special memories.”
