Good question! Keeper is a social memorial website dedicated to remembering the lives of the departed. Our passion is storytelling, so we built a tool to help people preserve a life story and all the memories that come with it. You can create a collaborative memorial, where friends and family can leave condolences, upload photos, like, share, comment, connect, and remember those who are dearly missed. Whether you would like to share these memories with the world, or privately with a few close relatives, Keeper's platform is secure, simple and flexible.
Online Memorials are virtual spaces of remembrance, celebration and commemoration for the deceased. At the touch of a button you can revisit the life of a loved one, leave a condolence message, view their life through photographs and videos and connect with family members and friends.
We used to commemorate our loved ones by sharing analogue photo books, home videos and memories with each other. Today, almost all of our photos and videos are created and stored digitally, and our family and friends are spread across the country and the world.
Online memorials are the perfect way to store and share these memories, while bringing everyone together in a collaborative commemoration. Rather than save the images in a personal cloud storage that only you can see, online memorials let you and your family collect your favorite memories, share stories and give your loved one a dignified legacy for generations to come.
Click on the 'Sign Up' link at the top right of the page. You'll be asked to input some basic information about your loved one to get their memorial started. You will also have to fill out some information about yourself because you become the Keeper (i.e. the administrator) of their memorial.
Yes you can! On the Sign Up page, select the Create my Own Profile option. We just need some basic information, including your email, which will be used as your login. Once you've signed up, you can create a memorial, connect with an existing memorial, become part of a family tree or even begin building your legacy.
At Keeper, we believe that everyone should plan ahead. When you sign up to Keeper, you can write out your own biography, create your family tree, and begin uploading your treasured photos and videos. Designate a family member to become your Keeper so that when you pass away, they can gain control of your profile and add any other information to keep your memory alive. Give it a try here.
As a Keeper, you have total control of your loved one's memorial. Memorials can be 100% public or 100% private. Want to share your memorial with family only? You can do that. Want a public profile but private images? You can do that as well. Learn more about Privacy Settings Here.
Unlike newspaper obituaries which may only last a few days, or other websites that charge to keep it online, Keeper memorials are designed to last a lifetime. We do not delete any profile (but you can always remove any memorial you create). There are no trial periods or hidden costs.
Keeper memorials can easily be linked to a loved one's resting place. Our Mobile App lets you geotag the exact coordinates of your loved one's location, allowing family members and friends to be guided directly to their monument with Google Maps.
Our Mobile App for Android phones can be downloaded from the Play Store for free! With our app, you can view memorials, edit any memorial you manage, view and upload photos, geotag a monument and more. Learn more about our Mobile App Here.

From dealing with loss, learning about cremation and green burial, tips for navigating grief and interesting death facts, the TalkDeath Keeper Community has got you covered.

Videos can be featured on a memorial, but not uploaded to Keeper directly. The first step to featuring a video on a memorial is to upload it to a video site. Keeper currently supports YouTube & Vimeo. Learn how to upload a video here.
A Keeper is the user that is designated to manage an online memorial. They are the “Keeper” of the legacy, responsible to keep the memories of that person alive. By creating a loved one's online memorial, you automatically become their Keeper.
Assigning a Keeper to your profile ensures that your loved ones can access your memorial once you pass away. Use your Keeper profile to upload photos, write out your biography, milestones and build your family tree. When you pass away, your family can publish your life history, post and receive condolences, set up an In Memoriam Donation and manage your legacy.

Geotagging is the process of adding geographical identification to a place or object.
