Keterangan Peraduan

I started a website, [url removed, login to view], as a place to post and share about lost loved ones, ancestors, and personally meaningful places (i.e., family home, a favorite restaurant that used to exist, etc.).

The inspiration for the website came from the desire to share and build upon my understanding of my grandfather that passed away in 2004. Although I can't build new memories with him, I can at least learn more about him by having a place for my friends and family to share objective information in the article about him (i.e., date of birth, profession, and other factual information) as well as more personal experiences through postings I call "Branches" that are tied to the main article (more subjective and focused on particular one-on-one experiences). To see my grandfather's articles and the branches about him (at the bottom of the page on his article), follow search for Frank Cantrell on StoryBrancher.

The ultimate goal is for StoryBrancher to be a place where people go to share and learn more about their past--their lost loved ones, ancestors, and special places they cherish. To do this, however, I need to build content and spread awareness. That's why I'm creating this contest.

The person that creates the most articles on any of the topics above--lost loved ones, ancestors, and personally significant places--will be awarded the $100 prize.

Requirements for Articles:

-The articles must be at least 400 words or more
-Articles must be objective (factual information--think Wikipedia) (Branches are where subjective, more personal accounts go)
-Quality counts--make sure that the articles have enough information for others to find useful (if an article is rejected, I will let you know why)

Request:

-I would suggest that you enlist the help of friends and family to create articles and branches. These posts would count towards your total articles for the contest (in addition to providing a venue for your own friends and family to share and learn more about the past through the various pieces of the puzzles that they hold). To get credit, email info@[url removed, login to view] with your Freelancer name and then the names of the people that you invited to StoryBrancher. Please keep in mind that all posts must be made by the end of the contest to count.

Important Notes:

-After you sign up on StoryBrancher, make sure to check the spam folder of the email address you used. Some people have reported that emails from StoryBrancher ended up in their spam folders.
-Before the contest ends, make sure to submit the links to all the articles you created (or your invitees created) on this freelancer contest page (this will be verified by me on the back end on the StoryBrancher website)

    Thank you for creating Story Brancher! I've been searching and digging up information about people in my family tree who have left their mark in time. I had some information thanks to my mother whose used to tell us stories about them. However, it has been a journey of insights as I searched for material and found some online!

    There are women in my family who had stature and did a lot of good work in their time. I am very proud of them! I have been sharing about them to my cousins and other relatives so they would be inspired too. Story Brancher is a good platform for such activities! I have submitted about one great great grand aunt whose biography appeared in the newspaper. Do have a look!

    Moreover I lost my Dad in 2006 and my only brother in 2009. I am sure my family would like a place where memories can be collated. Thank you!

      Thank you for your message. I hope you find it useful. I wanted to create a place where new and deeper understanding of lost loved can be found through the interaction of friends and family (and others). Among my family, I found it difficult to piece information together through one-on-one conversations and thought a wiki format would be good for building upon both biographical information as well as specific, personal experiences. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    LOST LOVED ONES : Once upon a time i am traveling to other city Karachi in 2012 due to enjoyment suddenly that day i heard that my aunt has passed away from this world from having cancer that movement i became quit and then cry because my aunt loves me more more and more than their children and me to love her so that was the day i lost loved ones .
    ANCESTORS: In this world we are from our ancestor sexual work . form ancestor we learned how to lead our life and how to live . when we came in this world we are free of all sins and don't know anything else. How we further grow more and more we adopt all bad and good from our ancestors and finaly we came to that position to represent our ancestors either that is right or wrong.
    AND,
    PERSONALLY SIGNIFICANT PLACES : Our personally significant places in life is the day of interview of job, when we have only last chance to do it so that is why it is also significant for us

      Thank you for sharing the story. My grandfather passed away from cancer as well and it was very tough to deal with. Feel free to create a page about your Aunt on StoryBrancher. I created one about my grandfather and my family contributes to it to share their stories about him.

      Thank you for the kind words and glad that you find it useful and meaningful. Please tell others about it whom may benefit from using it and encourage them to sign up, post, share, and tell others. I see the website being most meaningful when people are able to add to the information of others on an article to create a fuller picture of their lost loved one or ancestor.
