Instagram Great Gram Tomorrow

Saturday, September 14, 2013

It's tomorrow - the big day, and more and more people are spreading the word.

Here's how you join in -- 

What: Instagram Great Gram Day

Why?:  Who helped you become who you are today? What made them tick? What if you could learn more about your family and keep track of them, their pictures, stories, and histories online in a social way?  With, you can.  Let's tell everyone about this fun way to connect with your past!

When:  September 15, 2013 - kicking off this year's Family Proclamation Celebration

What do I do on September 15?:  Post your ancestor's picture onto Facebook as your profile picture, and/or a few times throughout the day onto your Instagram and Twitter feeds.  Leave the profile picture up for as long as you can to give others the chance to catch on.

In your status, caption, or tweet, include with the picture:

- The person's name

- How you're related

- A brief blurb on their life if you know it

- This link:

- And a fun little hash tag like #IGGday, #grateful or #Ancestor

For example, I might share this pic -

and write the following in my status on Facebook or as the caption on Instagram:

Vera Verna Carneal (standing on left); my Grandmother! (Isn't she a beauty??); Faithful mother of three who has used her talents and energy to serve and bless others throughout her life. #IGGday #grateful

IGG Day is meant to make an IMPACT and that means your help is key.  Spread the word by sharing the image below and a link to these instructions on your Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or blog.  

Enjoy and happy IGG Day!
