Welcome to the Keeper Community!
In order to sign up with Keeper and create a memorial page, you first need to create an account for yourself. When you sign up with us, you will have your own profile, as well as memorial pages for your loved ones.
Memorial pages are created by their “Keepers.” Keepers are the memorial page administrators.
Once you have completed your registration and are signed into your account, follow these steps to create a memorial page:
If you are a Keeper Admin of a memorial page, follow the instructions below to upload images to a memorial page. If you are a guest on our site, click here for instructions on sharing an image to a memorial page.
Keeper enables you to upload videos to a memorial page using a link from a video-sharing website like YouTube or Video, or directly from a video file stored on a computer or a mobile device.From a Link:
Keeper supports the following video file types: .avi, .mkv, .3gp, .mov, .mp4, .wmv, .flv, .mpg, .mpeg. The maximum file size per video is 2GB.
*Including images on the Family Tree is a Keeper Plus feature.
When uploading a photo in the Tribute section, you are able to share one image at a time. If you are the Keeper of the memorial page, you can upload many photos at once via the Mementos section. To learn more, click here.
Maximum file size per image is 5MB.
Maximum image size is 5000px x 5000px.
We currently support the following image file types: .png, .jpg, .jpeg, .gif (.gifs will not appear animated)
Icons are small graphical images that can be used to personalize a Keeper memorial page, and even your own profile. Icons include religious symbols, floral patterns, images of hobbies, and more.
To remove the icon:
Customizing a URL is available to Keeper Plus users.
To modify the link associated to your profile, or a memorial page that you manage:
Please note that at this time, we cannot remove the word "profile" from the URL. (Updates coming in 2021!)
If you wish to add multiple Keepers to a memorial page, you would require our Keeper Plus membership. Click here to learn more about the benefits of Keeper Plus!
Please note that Google, Bing and other search engines index Keeper’s website automatically. Private Keeper memorial pages will still be displayed on search engines. When a guest clicks on a private Keeper memorial page link from a search engine, they will be taken to the Keeper memorial page but will only see the basic public information on the memorial page.
The steps above should be repeated on the memorial page(s) you are the Keeper of.
A virtual funeral or virtual memorial with Keeper is like an in-person one but it’s conducted online with family and friends participating virtually via video conference. Keeper works with families to personalize each service so that their memorial is unique and meaningful.
A hybrid funeral combines a virtual memorial with an in-person gathering so that family and friends who are unable to attend in person can still meaningfully participate in the memorial service. We also offer livestream only funeral services.
A livestreamed funeral or memorial service is for families who wish to have their in-person service virtually broadcast live to those unable to attend in person. Unlike a Virtual or Hybrid funeral service, virtual guests attending a livestream do not speak or make presentations during the event.
Keeper is happy to assist in the facilitation of a livestream funeral or memorial service.
A Keeper facilitator becomes your concierge who will be there with you every step of the way--from finding the right words to say and hosting the video conference, to online event page creation, sending invitations, guest list management, and much more. Our virtual & hybrid funeral services include eulogies, image slideshows, videos, and recitations of poetry, religious texts, or other passages. The service can also include a hands-on legacy activity such as gardening, cooking, or meditation.
Your funeral service facilitator will collaborate with you to create a personalized legacy project or activity for you and your participants during the virtual or hybrid funeral service. Legacy activities honor your loved one by participating in an activity that is reflective of them. It can be active, collaborative, quiet, or reflective - you decide! Some examples include gardening, yoga, meditation, cooking, and art.
Our funeral service facilitation is for families who would like a virtual or hybrid funeral service to be created, planned, and conducted for them.
Families who are holding an in-person event and wish to have the event livestreamed to virtual guests should inquire about our Livestream only service. Families who feel comfortable creating and conducting an online memorial or funeral service themselves may do so using Keeper’s Event Pages and live streaming functionality. Click here to learn more
Our expert facilitators will remotely assist and coordinate with your on-site contact. Hybrid funeral services require a tech savvy family or friend, or venue employee (DJ, technician, etc.) to be present as the on-site contact.
While Keeper does provide equipment rental services, rest assured that very little equipment is needed to host a hybrid or virtual memorial service. If you are hosting a hybrid or livestreamed event at a venue, the majority of the equipment may already be provided by the venue (or can be rented through them).
Some equipment you may consider purchasing*:
