Message from the Founder


A couple years ago I had a life changing experience when I lost my last remaining grandparent. I always believed there'd be more time but at 89 she breathed her last and never again would I hear her stories about growing up on a farm and living through the Great Depression and WW2. She committed her life to ministry and was faithfully married over 60 years but tragically all that remained were some old photos and my fading memory. Like many I wished I'd recorded her stories so I could share them with my kids. Suddenly, it occurred to me her legacy and the legacies of thousands of others were just like footprints in the sand in danger of being lost forever. Losing those memories was not an acceptable outcome for a life well lived so I founded the company Got Legacy.

We are exclusively dedicated to making the process of preserving memories fast, easy, affordable and fun. In a way, our services save lives and set memories free through dramatic 1 hour video documentaries, slideshows, animated photos and online do it yourself legacies. We believe everyone has a unique story to share and no one should suffer the regret of losing their story forever. Its my hope you'll take advantage of these services as I truly believe you'll find peace and joy preserving your memories but best of all you'll be leaving a keepsake your loved ones will treasure for generations.

Warm Regards,
John McCarty
