Celebrating Legacy is a new social media start-up that provides Web-based subscription services positioned at the intersection of the Digital Afterlife, Genealogical Relationships and Social Media.
“Mr. Hall brings a strong background in Internet start-ups and a proven track record in obtaining capital to Celebrating Legacy.

“Celebrating Legacy is the most exciting new social media opportunity I’ve seen.

The personal desire to leave a legacy is keenly human and Celebrating Legacy offers an easy and interactive process in which to participate.”
