The online registry allows users to safely preserve and share the stories behind family heirlooms, antiques and family keepsakes.
During the show, “Genealogy Guys” host George G. Morgan discussed how the registry works, and detailed his own experiences using the service to register his own family heirlooms.
“I urge you to take a look and investigate (The Heirloom Registry),” Morgan told his listeners during the March 3 show. “This is a better way to pass on stories, (compared to) writing it on a piece of paper and stapling it to the back or the underside of an item…It’s a great way to provide some archival documentation…and to put them out there for other people.”
Dan Hiestand, Houstory marketing director, said he was grateful to the show for its upbeat review.
“I’ve been a long-time listener of their show – going back several years – so we have a lot of respect for what they bring to the family history and genealogy communities,” said Hiestand. “George and Drew have a large and loyal following, and their words carry a lot of weight. We are delighted to know they feel The Heirloom Registry brings value to their audience.”
This week, Houstory will be in Salt Lake City to demonstrate The Heirloom Registry for attendees at the 2013 RootsTech convention.
