The Woman Who Taught me to Love Family History and Storytelling
Our Grandma passed away on Feb 3, 1988. I was just 15, but her passing affected me deeply. The next day, we went to her home to help grandpa, and I remember seeing her shoes–light blue Keds–askew on the bathroom floor next to her rolled up socks.
There were many things she excelled in, but preserving her family history was a thread that she wove throughout her life. She consistently encouraged and supported her family to record and share their histories.
The records she left behind were the catalyst that inspired us to build Kindex, a tool that enables families to gather, index, and share their records.
As we work so hard to carry on the legacy she started, we find her often in our thoughts. As we head to and prepare to present Kindex in the Innovator Showdown, we hope to accomplish something she can be proud of.
