Google Hosting LIFE Photo Archive

November 18th, 2008

Today was announced that Google will be hosting the 3 million images that were released from the Time-Life archives to the public. Most of these images have never been seen by the public until now. An additional 7 million photographs may be added in the next few months or years. 


Note that you can also use the regular images search by adding a tag. If you wanted to search for ‘ww2′ you would go to and type ’ww2 source:life’.

October 8th, 2008

Finally! It took our web host a bit longer than expected to move us to a faster machine. The main reason being that no machines were available at the time of ordering and thus needed a bit of time to set up first.

You now need to register to post comments

July 4th, 2008

I’m glad to see that people are posting lots of interesting comments under the photos, but there’s also a lot of people posting unnecessary comments just to tick everyone off. Therefore, I’ve decided to make the comments feature require registering and you will now have to sign up for an account in order to post comments. In the future, more features will be available that will require your user account. For now, lets try and keep the comments civil. Thank you.

Now Upload Your Ancestor Photos!

May 24th, 2008

Due to popular demand, you now have a place to upload your ancestor/family related photos. If you’re looking for help in identifying the people in your photograph, go ahead and upload it to our Ancestory Family Album and you’ll get a chance to have millions of people view your photograph! Go to the “Upload a Photo” tab and make sure you pick “Ancestor Photos” in the Category.

Off to a Great Start

January 21st, 2008

This website officially went live two days ago. Since then, we’ve had over 300 comments posted to the photo gallery, as well as numerous emails from people asking how they can help contribute with captions. Currently, the software is limited and we can’t manually change every caption right away.
