Ancestry is about your roots. Annuary is about your branches.

Facebook isn’t a legacy plan.

Let’s be honest. Leaving your memories to friends and family online doesn’t work. We all have good intentions, but to think that posting photos from our phones or using a password protected subscription service like cloud storage is helpful, and that one day our family will be able to access that information is foolish. This is simply not how it works. It all disappears. Forever.

If you are short on time but serious about passing on your values and most cherished memories, you need a different approach.

Award-winning documentarians and designers Jennifer & Brandon Wade have a proven process to help you get clear, get motivated and get started on a path toward archiving and passing down your most valuable memories.

– Patrick S.

The Life & Times Annuary is a living memoir for those who are rich with life experiences and short on the time it takes to capture it all in a daily journal. Instead of buckling under the pressure of keeping up a personal log day after day, the owner of this beautifully designed book will look forward to filling out just two pages each year with the highlights, and yes, even the lowlights, of the past 365 days.
