FileShadow, Inc. announces the its Family Vault supporting family history buffs, genealogists, individuals and families in collecting, curating, storing and preserving precious family documents.
The service collects content in real-time, storing it in a dynamic family archive.
Connect multiple clouds and sources into one family vault
FileShadow collects all of files into one cloud-based repository from sources such as iCloud, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business; local storage (macOS, Windows Desktops, Windows Virtual Desktops); and network and DAS (NAS/DAS) devices.
Collect and search all of digital assets
All types of physical documents (not born digital) can be scanned and gathered into the FileShadow system such as family portraits, family reunion and wedding photos, journals, legal or official documents, contracts and government records. Once scanned and in PDF form, FileShadow’s OCR searches even these old documents as if they were born digital.
“FileShadow Family Vault brings together all of your digital and non-digital family and historical records,” said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO, FileShadow. “Users create their own vault that allows them to categorize, curate, protect and share different collections with anyone they choose. FileShadow is the best and easiest way to protect your most important documents in the Cloud.“
Categorize files through AI and ML
Once in the FileShadow vault, an AI and ML process analyzes the content to create metadata tags, including location (GPS), OCR of PDFs and ML-generated tags for images. For example, FileShadow will automatically identify terms in a document such as marriage and certificate for a marriage certificate, even if those terms are not in the file name but are in the document text, making it simple to search for and find Great Grandma and Grandpa’s marriage certificate. Users can also apply custom tags such as marriage certificate and Great Grandma. With automated and custom meta tags, users can create collections without endless hours of searching and viewing documents.
Share files with anyone, even those without FileShadow accounts
FileShadow allows users to publish collections of family files from their FileShadow Family Vault by generating shareable links. The FileShadow Publish feature is a simple and secure way for families to curate, store and share important photos from family reunions, birth certificates, naturalization papers, letters and more. Every family member can access important family memories and files, regardless of whether or not they are FileShadow users. These links can also be used as source links in popular genealogy programs and services, such as ancestry and family search, among others.
