1 Get Yours

Buy a Time Capsule for yourself, make one for someone else, gift one to someone, or create one as a memorial.

Do it for yourself or gift it.

A Time Capsule is an investment in legacy and can be a gift of a lifetime. Enhance your Family History Research, own your last word, share a secret once you are gone, or simply leave your story for your own reflection in decades to come.
Time Capsules can be delivered via email or post. A license code will be issued to the receiver, and they will need to return to this website to initiate their gift.

Childhood is so fleeting… seize the day and create a family treasure. Building a Time Capsule is a meaningful, fun and creative experience for the whole family.

2 Make a Few Important Decisions

How long will your Time Capsule be preserved?

50 years, 150 years, or 300 years

What’s inside your capsule...will you film a NotForgotten Video?

- Yes? Will you film it using your own tools (and upload it), use the NotForgotten app, or hire a videographer. - No? What documents, pictures or books will tell your story (300 year packages only).

When do you want the world to open your Time Capsule?

(a) Share it only with the people you want to share it with (b) Open it to the public now. (c) Keep it completely private to be released to the public in 10 years or 50 years.
