About the Famento Team

Lauren Kwan, Co-Founder
After my grandmother passed away, I realized my family didn’t have a permanent way to preserve her stories and legacy. For that matter, I didn’t have a very good way of sharing more detailed stories about what was happening in my life with friends and family who are spread around the world.
That’s why I wanted to create Famento. I wanted a place where each of us can record our own life stories and stay connected with the people we care about, no matter how far we live from each other, or how many generations apart we are.

Kevin Chen, Co-Founder
In Taiwan and other parts of Asia, there is a holiday similar to Memorial Day, where families honor their ancestors. A few years ago, I went with my family to visit the tomb of my grandfather on this holiday. I heard a lot of stories about my family that I wanted to record.
However, I found trying to be the family historian very difficult. I think in most families, stories and photos are scattered between numerous family members. Information is constantly being lost as older generations pass away and younger generations drift apart.
I wanted to build Famento to be that permanent record. I believe future generations will go online to sites like Famento to learn about their family history.
