Not only can you upload your digitized photos, records and stories to an ancestor’s Fold3 memorial page, but you also can let others help you fill in the blanks with their own content. Follow these steps to create a memorial page that pays tribute to your ancestor’s military service.
1. Set up a Fold3 account.
2. Check for existing pages.
3. Create a new page.
If you didn’t find a page for your ancestor or you want to create your own, log in to Fold3, click Memorials on the top menu and select Create a Memorial Page. You can create a page that memorializes a person, event, place or organization. To honor a military ancestor, select Person from the options A. To prevent others from adding content, uncheck the Allow Fold3 Members to Add Items box. You can always enable this feature later. Click Continue.
4. Add an image of your ancestor.
5. Fill in the details.
6. Use more features.
Even if you don’t have a paid Fold3 subscription, you may be able to find more information about your ancestor in the site’s free collections. In the Find More Information box on the left, select Collections and click Search.
