What is your 'Living Legacy'?
Your life experiences will touch the lives of your loved ones today and your future generations.
Your Life Journal
Imagine the ability to jump back in time and journal your entire life? No we have not invented a time machine, but we have developed a platform for you to answer questions about your early childhood, your teens, early adulthood and present life. Either for yourself or for you to share with your loved ones!
The Entire Family
Not only do you get to embark on this journey, but your whole family will be able to join you. Each account will include your entire household. As well as the ability to share and link other family members to your account. Everyone will be answering the same series of questions but all giving different and exciting answers.
We give you the ability not only to journal your past and present via text, but also through your pictures. You can upload text, pictures and images or any combination of the three to your online journal and profile. You know what they say, "A Picture is Worth a 1000 Words"! Well we feel the same way!
Privacy Is Key
We understand that your privacy is crucial! Thats why our site, along with your data is super secure! We will NEVER share your information to anyone. When you are answering your life questions, you have the ability to choose to have your answer PRIVATE or SHARABLE with your family circle!
Your Questions. Your Answers.
Right now millions of people are searching on Geneology Websites every day to get even the tiniest bit of data about their families, but few are doing anything to preserve present knowledge for future generations.
Our platform will be seeded with hundreds of questions that we know people have about their families and life lessons from their past. Those questions will make it easy for members to spend as little as 2-10 minutes a day building and preserving a history for their children and for future generations.
If you don’t like a question you can edit it or even write your own questions. Family members can also submit questions for other family members or friends to answer and members can submit questions for use by other members of the community as a whole. In this way our system will constantly evolve and become better at serving our community over time.
Imagine if you could ask your parents, grandparents or great grandparents questions today like...
- Tell me what it was like when you became a father or mother for the first time?
- What were you thinking the first time you asked a girl to dance?
- What was your first job and what did it teach you?
- What were you doing the day that WWII began and what did it feel like?
- What was your favorite game as a child?
- If you could give me one piece of advice about life what would it be?
- AND HUNDREDS MORE!
Why GenForward and Why Now
Many are calling the current generation of young people the new “lost generation” but the truth is far more concerning. It is not just our young people that are lost right now, in reality, many of us are as well.
Many have forgotten the hard won lessons or our past, the real truth of the dream along with a true sense of purpose and meaning. Families have grown distant while the web has linked strangers together as "friends" at the same time. As the founders of GenForward looked into our past, at our present situation and into the future we indeed came to realize how lost many of us really are.
When you are lost the first thing you do is stop and assess your situation. The very next step is to figure out where you are and this is done by examining where you came from. One of the big reasons so many people are lost today is precisely that. They don’t know where they came from, so they don’t really know where they are and hence can't possibly determine where they are headed.
GenForward will help us leave a road map for future generations. It will also help us to become better fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters. Indeed it will even help us to become better husbands and wives. It will lead us on journeys into our own pasts so that we may better understand who we are as well. It will be a daily reminder that the actions we take today have consequences for generations to come.
For the first time ever people will know that their words, thoughts, triumphs, defeats and most prized lessons will one day be there for future generations.
