Following her grandfather’s passing, Rachel LaCour-Niesen was given photographs that spanned several generations of her family. As she started to uncover the emotional and beautiful stories of her relatives, she quickly discovered a new found passion for family history.
Anxious to share those stories with extended family and friends, she established Save Family Photos, with the mission to “…save family stories, one photo at a time.” Originally, what started as an Instagram page to feature family photographs and stories has quickly caught fire and attracted thousands of photo entries from budding family historians across the globe.
Honor an ancestor’s legacy. Share a unique family story. Capture your family history in some way. We applaud Rachel for her efforts and inspiring so many new family historians in this unique way.
