In 2020, Covid-19 devastated the world.
I was nervous to lose my grandparents.
In case tragedy struck, I wanted to record their stories so that one day my kids could 'meet' them.
So, I recorded videos of myself interviewing them about their lives.
They lit up when they told me about their love story, having kids, and how different life used to be.
The interview was priceless.
I wanted to store it where it wouldn't get lost, deleted, or forgotten about.
That is when I went searching for a solution...
I needed a solution that was easy, secure, and unforgettable, and none of the solutions I found had all three.
In the cloud, big files can become corrupted and forgotten about.
Easy, but not secure and unforgettable
Cheap USB Drive
A USB drive can get lost and makes it hard to watch and share videos.
Secure, but not unforgettable and easy
Writing a Book
Writing a book is great, but takes a TON of time and effort.
Unforgettable and secure, but not easy
So, I combined them to create a new solution called, The Legacy Book!

About the Founder, Victor
My family has deep Italian roots, and I always wanted to know more about them.
I would have loved to hear my great-grandfathers war stories when he fought in WWI for the Italians.
Or about my great-grandmothers nursing career in Michigan.
Or about one of my other great-grandparents who lived a "normal" life.
I created 103Legacy in 2020, so my kids can get to know their great-grandparents like I couldn't.
I know your family has many great stories too, and I hope that 103Legacy can help you record and save them as well.
