Memorial websites

Did you know that with just a few clicks of your mouse, you can convert a newspaper obituary to a customizable memorial website?

To begin, go to: http://memorialwebsites.legacy.com/ and click the “start now” button.  Add your loved one’s name, select background music and a design, choose a unique url (for example, the deceased’s name), and that’s all there is to it!  Once you’ve created your account, you can add as few or as many features and information as you like: 

  1. Biography
  2. Main photo
  3. Place of birth and death
  4. Memberships
  5. Import newspaper obituary
  6. Import newspaper Guest Book or create a Memory Book
  7. Favorite things
  8. Charities to which you’d like donations made
  9. Journal
  10. Photo gallery with up to 150 photos
  11. Media gallery with up to 30 video and audio files
  12. Timeline of events with photos

There’s no need to agonize over design or features – you can update your memorial website at any time.

Creating an online memorial website is a great way to preserve and enhance your loved one’s newspaper obituary and Guest Book.  We regularly receive positive feedback about our sites, including this touching note from Elaine Phillips: 

“This Memorial Website helps in many ways. I am able to go to the site and look back at all the wonderful comments expressed in his Memory book, view the many photos, and even video clips of his funeral with the Salute from the New Orleans Fire Dept. One important fact is that when Kris’ two boys get older they will have this Memorial Web Site to look back and see all the beautiful expressions and comments that mention their Dad.

Thanks Legacy.Com Memorial Websites you have made a ladder to Kris for us.”

About Katie

I joined Legacy.com in 2002 as a part-time content screener and now serve as Director of Operations, overseeing Legacy’s day-to-day operations (Guest Book screening, obituary processing, customer service, and client service). I grew up in California, the daughter of a psychologist and a minister. My parents instilled in me the importance of listening to and caring about others. One of the things I appreciate most about working at Legacy.com is that I am able to have a small part in easing people's pain during one of the most difficult times in their lives. In my life outside of Legacy, I enjoy baking treats (and bringing them to the office to share), playing the piano, reading, taking pictures, tending to our vegetable & herb gardens, trying out new restaurants and foods, spending time with my husband, Chuck (whom I met at Legacy) and our kids, Brett Jr. & Josie, and playing with our hound dogs, Mugsy and Bo Jangles.
