Learn about LegacyShare Connections
A Legacy Connection occurs when you invite someone to view your Legacybook and they accept. They can then view your Legacybook and comment on your stories.
Conversly, when someone invites you to view their Legacybook and you accept, you establish a Legacy Connection with them. You can view their Legacybook and comment on their stories but they cannot see your Legacybook unless you explicitly invite them.
Learn about LegacyShare Reading Lists
Have a particular Legacybook you enjoy reading? Want to follow a friend or family member’s Legacybook updates? It's easy. Just add them to your reading list by going to the Legacybook you’d like to add, click the navigation icon in the upper left of the Legacybook and choose "Add to Reading List". Remember though, they need to invite you to read their Legacybook first.

What Is a Legacybook?
A Legacybook consists of three major sections; the cover, chapters and stories:
Your cover: this is where you add a full sized photo, some attributes about yourself and a quick bio. Your cover is the first page viewers will see when they come to your Legacybook.
Chapters: these create the framework and organization that will contain your stories.
Stories: this is where you’ll spend most of your time in your Legacybook. You can create as many stories as you like in a chapter. As you’re writing your stories, you’ll be able to add photos, audio, files – and soon video. Finally, those you share your legacy with will be able to comment on your stories.
Get Into Your Legacybook
First time in Legacyshare? Click the large green “Start Creating Now” button in the left of your home page screen to start your Legacybook.
Already started a Legacybook? Get back into it by clicking the large photo area in the upper left of your home page screen after logging in.
Once you’re in your Legacybook, the three green lines that appear in the upper left under the Legacyshare logo serve as your main navigation to chapters and stories.
To leave your Legacybook and go back to your home page with the News Feed, click on the Legacyshare logo.
Why Tag Your Stories?
Legacyshare allows you to tag your stories with the people, places, timelines, and topics relevant to your story. These tags will automatically populate a map, a timeline and a people directory providing an interactive experience for you and your readers.
How Do I Invite Someone to View My Legacybook?
Click “My Connections” on the right side of your home page
Then click the “Share Legacybook” green button in the upper right
Note: Allowing someone to view your Legacybook does not give you automatic access to view their Legacybook. They must send you a personal invitation to view their Legacybook.
Private vs. Public: What's The Difference?
By default, all Chapters that you create are Private. This means that someone can view your Chapter only if you send an invitation. Public means that anyone who is a registered user on Legacyshare can view your Chapter. To change your settings:
Private Chapter = “Public” set to “No”
Public Chapter = “Public” set to “Yes”
All Stories will follow Chapter settings.
Publish vs. Un-publish: What's The Difference?
By default, all Chapters that you create are unpublished. This means no one can see that Chapter until you select “On” for Publish. As long as your Chapter remains “Off” it is invisible to everyone but you. To change your settings:
