I first heard of Zahmoo because they started following me on Twitter. On their website Zahmoo is self described as "a story bank" for family and business stories. With the family edition you get a system for collecting and sharing stories. This includes 1 collection of unlimited stories, 10GB of storage, and up to 20 members at a price of $5/month (after their 30 day free trial). You upload your text, picture, audio, and video "stories" to your story bank and they are preserved and shareable within the clouds. You then invite other members to join your bank by sending them an invitation. These members can read, comment, and add their own stories. I wonder where the name Zahmoo comes from?? I'm intrigued by the idea of Zahmoo. It's purpose is simple and to the point. It seems like a marketable idea for the genealogy consumer. Family history research requires a ton of organization, and I know first hand how much work goes into collecting, sharing, and preserving all of the details. But, is it worth $5 a month for their family level account?
