Heirlooms Can Be New Too! The Heirloom Registry https://www.heirloomregistry.com
Recently for my birthday, I received a great gift: a painting from an artist friend . . . .
I knew I’d hang it in my office as inspiration: the robin’s eggs represent ideas and I use my office as a “nest” to incubate new ideas for my business.I also know that I had received an item that could be a family heirloom and passed down to future generations.
On the rear of the painting was the artist’sinformation but I wanted an innovative way to tell the story behind this new heirloom.
The solution: identification stickers from The Heirloom Registry!
I had received a sticker at a recent genealogyconference, so I placed it on the back of the painting.
Next, I went to http://www.heirloomregistry.com, set up a free account and then entered the registration number.
I provided as much detailed as I wanted about the heirloom, including a photo.
I also had an option of keeping some information“private” such as the location of the item or the value. You can also set a “year” for this information to be released, sort of like setting up a time capsule!
Once registered, I had a great way to share the information with others using the links toFacebook, Twitter and other social media sites!
I can also save a PDF version of the record, a “Registry Certificate,” to my hard drive for safekeeping.
Now I plan to order more stickers from The Heirloom Registry and start telling the story of other family heirlooms.
