Preserving a Legacy: Tracing Corporate & Company Histories
As genealogists, it’s a given that we love to learn about the past. Usually this means extending family lines and learning more about specific people, but it can also include other things like learning about the history of a house, a community, or even a company. There are a variety of reasons people might want to learn about the history of a company. Some people might want to know about the place where their ancestor worked. Others might want to put together a history of their own company for a milestone anniversary, a retirement gift, or just for the sake of having a history for posterity to read. Whatever your reason – we can help!
Company Histories, Tailored to Your Needs
One thing we love about creating company histories is that they can be tailored and customized to fit the purpose you are going to use them for. You might want to include a history of the surrounding area and how the company affected the local economy and community vibe. Or you may want to include interviews with people who worked there over the course of its history – including people from entry-level all the way up to leadership roles. You’ll probably want photos of the building(s) the company occupied, or photos of people who worked there. While all of this is not always easy and/or quick to track down, the skills needed to ferret out the details of a company and its people are the same skills used to learn about the history of a family, and with enough diligence, it is often possible to create an interesting and informative company history.
