QR Codes Keep a Loved One's Memory Alive


Your Loved One Becomes More Than a Name - They Can Tell Their Story


Imagine the excitement of a grandchild learning about a grandparent's or great-grandparent's life just by scanning a QR code on a relative's headstone using their smartphone! Or by scanning a QR code in a letter or on a celebration of life document. Every life story created on this website receives a free QR code suitable for printing on a document or web page. Metal copies of the QR code suitable for use on headstones, can be purchased separately.

These headstone QR codes are an easy way to connect family and visitors to the memorial of a lost loved one. The codes are placed directly on the monument and link to a personalized Family Story Library web page. 

When someone walks by the headstone, they can scan the QR code with their smartphone. The QR code connects them to a Family Story Library page created for that person. Visitors may see photos, videos, documents, journal entries, audio clips, or a biography of the person who lies in the grave before them. All information on these QR codes has privacy settings, so personal memories can be kept confidential or only viewable by family. Future generations can learn about the lives of their descendants while standing at their graveside.
