Our Mission

How many people do you know with great stories? How many of them will be remembered? We are all making history and no one’s contribution should be forgotten.

Tell History is democratizing the way history is told, recorded and shared. This is a job far too important–and far too large–to be left to academics alone.

We give you the tools to save these stories. Why? Because the memories that matter to you, your family, and your community are incredibly valuable, but they are also fragile. They deserve to be passed on to future generations.

We offer a place for personal experiences to be preserved. Every new story contributes to a better understanding of the world we live in today.

We all shape the future, and we all should be present in the past.
