We keep memories, seriously.

About Us

Welcome to GREATGrandparents the first offering by Hugo International Ltd. or H.int for short.

We are passionate about memories, and keeping them safe, not only photographs but personality as well. We strive to make keeping oral history of events and times in family life seem as natural as sitting on a grandparent’s lap listening to a story.

The primary contributor to our site at launch, is my own mother Valerie Hugo. I asked her to commit to just five photographs from her old drawer of family albums, and what initially started as a little idea, manifested into over 100 recordings of my mom’s life. Listening to these stories revealed just how much of her own personality was being captured, without stage fright of being in front of cameras or anything to daunting.

One of our biggest accolades is winning Highly Commended at the Entrepreneurship competition the Open University hosted in 2018, read more about it here:

I developed this simple concept into the website you’re browsing now, a place where memories can be shared, and family members can treasure the sights and sounds of loved ones even if they are no longer with us.

If you’re interested in contributing or would like me to get in touch to start helping you capture your own history, don’t hesitate to contact us.
