1000Memories was a website that let people organize, share, and discover old photos and memories and to set up family trees.[1] It was shut down in late 2013 after an acquisition by Ancestry.com.[2]


The company was based out of San Francisco, California, and was founded in 2010 after co-founders Brett Huneycutt and Jonathan Good left McKinsey, and co-founder Rudy Adler left Wieden+Kennedy. Huneycutt and Adler met in elementary school and had previously co-founded the Border Film Project. Huneycutt and Good met as Rhodes Scholars.[3]

1000Memories was originally funded by Y Combinator, and has received $2.5 million in funding from Greylock Partners. Additional investors included Paul Buchheit, Keith Rabois, Ron Conway, Caterina Fake, Mike Maples, and Chris Sacca, among others.[4]

In the fall of 2012, 1000Memories was acquired by Ancestry.com for an undisclosed sum.[5]
