What Can A Personal Digital Archivist Do For Me?

At It’s a Digital Life, we’ll help you tell your story through a Personal Digital Archive, an innovative and fun way to document your family history so that memories can be preserved for generations to come. We will work with you to organize your important photos, personal papers and documents that signify life’s milestones, into a one-of-a kind digital collection that that is easily accessible and available. Your Personal Digital Archive can span many years or just a few. It can be divided into chapters and arranged by date, person, place or event. It’s unique to you and organized your way! We invite you to explore a small sample of founder Kathy Monaghan’s Personal Digital Archive.

What Can A Personal Digital Archivist Do For Me?


After initial consultation to discuss what you would like your Personal Digital Archive to contain, I convert into modern digital formats your photos, personal papers, and short videos. Your Personal Digital Archive is viewable on any computer, smart phone or tablet. All documents received for digitization will be stored securely and returned to you upon completion of the project. I will follow up with you on an annual basis to ensure your Personal Digital Archive is up to date.
