          Abstract

          One of the world’s fastest growing hobbies is Genealogy. Inspired by remarkable books such as Alex Haley’s Roots (1976), and more recently, television series such as Who Do You Think You Are?, where celebrities aided by professional researchers, discovered their family origins. Heartbreaks and ‘rattling skeletons in the cupboard’ were re-discovered, while raw emotions were captured by the probing documentary camera. Today, websites such as ‘Ancestry.com’ allow any of us to delve far into our own families past, from the comfort of our home office desk. However, these ‘cloud based’ data discoveries are very fragile archives indeed, particularly if subscriptions are terminated, or relatives who are unaware of a deceased’s research, loose access. The Victorian Family photo album and notes were archived as ‘Hard Copy’ and thus, many still survive today from well over a century ago. Updating the advantages of the Victorian Family Album, combined with the latest online technology, opens up many exciting opportunities for today’s online genealogists. This research describes a safer way to send their carefully researched family histories forward in time to their yet unborn, great, great, grandchildren, hundreds of years into the future. Genealogy.
