Founded in 2016 by EdTech pioneer Carey Furze of New Zealand, Bookform was established to optimise the use of technology to help anyone, anywhere or any age create, collate and save their precious family information and amazing stories.

Bookform offers 3 main channels for creating a family book:

  • Schools: A powerful, continuous community-building activity for schools, students, staff and alumni (building Family Books)
  • Aged care: A value-add for businesses and cognitive activity for residents
  • Libraries: A community engagement tool to bring citizens to existing venues for a fun, productive activity

Early studies misleadingly showed that elderly people are hesitant to write about and share their life stories, mainly because it is time-consuming, but also because they think their family will not be interested.

Bookform recognises more extensive and recent research that these early perceptions are inaccurate, and that technology in fact makes it easy to create family stories; also that counter to initial perceptions, grandchildren seek as much information as available about their family ancestry as they grow older, especially in a modern format that can be easily saved, stored and shared.
