The things we care about have stories — whether they are houses or cherished belongings. Houstory® has developed two products — The Heirloom Registry™ and the Home History Book™ archival journal — that help to protect and share those stories, providing lasting, accessible ways to make sure the stories and records of the things we care about are preserved and easily found by future generations.
The Heirloom Registry™ is a new service that allows users to pass on the story of their treasured belongings using high-quality labels and brass plates in conjunction with registration codes and a secure online database. Maybe it’s a quilt handed down from mom; a clock given to you by a favorite uncle; a coffee table received as a wedding gift; or a set of dishware passed down through the years. The Heirloom Registry™ helps you preserve and share these types of stories — stories that may otherwise be lost as time goes by.
The company also created the Home History Book™ archival journal series, a new, refreshingly simple product line designed to help record, preserve and share a home’s unique past as well as its present stories. The book, which one might think of as akin to a “baby book for a home,” is created and maintained by current homeowners. However, unlike a family’s personal scrapbook and photo albums, it is meant to stay with the home to be enjoyed by all who live there, now and in the future.
