The platform also allows a user to capture life stories in audio and video interviews of themselves, their relatives and friends to include in the family history.

 

Commenting on his appointment Dr Nick Barratt said, “Reliving is such an exciting concept that appeals to my historian’s interest in storytelling. It gives everyone the chance to share their experiences and life stories with family, and generations to come.

 

Chair of the Board, Prof Simon Gibson, CBE said, “I am delighted Nick is joining the Board of Directors,   His knowledge and influence in the family history space adds a great deal of value to Reliving, as the Company continues to develop.’ The Company’s product offering along with our strong network of partners and experts providing constant guidance will ensure we become leaders in the field.”

 

Dr Nick Barratt is a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society, an Honorary Associate Professor of public history at the University of Nottingham, a teaching fellow at the University of Dundee and sits on the Executive Committee of the Community Archives and Heritage Group. A qualified historian, specialising in thirteenth-century state finance and fiscal history, Nick is a published author and, prior to his current position, worked in the media for a number of years, primarily on genealogy based shows such as Who Do You Think You Are, So You Think You’re Royal, and Tracing Your Roots.

Reliving enables people to capture precious memories of their lives and those of their loved ones, keeping them safe and secure online for future generations to learn from. Whether it’s text, pictures, voice recordings or videos – users can upload them to a personal diary entry and/or a family time capsule to share their most precious memories with their family. Users can also contribute oral history to a community group by answering question packs in an audio or video interview to share their knowledge.

 

Life has to end, but stories live forever.
