PROBLEM: Tatyana had carried around a shoe box full of family photos her whole life. She moved to the US as a small child & her ties to her family & heritage is strong. She had also recently become a mother. When she found me she knew it was time to get those ancestors out of that box.   SOLUTION: “Organizing old photos is one of those things you put off indefinitely, and I probably would have never done anything about mine had I not discovered Memories Out of the Box a few blocks away from where we live.

I was not sure what to expect when I walked in with my shoebox full of old family photos, some taken 70 years ago in Russia, but Martie put me at ease and made sure I had all my questions answered before starting on my “project” (like, how could I make sure the photos could be taken out of the album if necessary).

I also appreciated all the subtle suggestions for arranging and ordering the photos (and the original use of duplicate prints that I had), and the sincere interest Martie expressed in my family history.

Finally, based on only a general explanation of what kind of an album book I wanted, Martie was able to track down a company that made exactly the kind of understated quality books I was looking for. I still have many blank pages left in my album, and perhaps one day Martie can help me fill them up.”
