Futurum Nunc Est , or Tomorrow is Now, is a project gathering recent history (the past 100 years) and current events for storage in family-owned time capsules.
I am fascinated by history and how people in the past connect to me. I, along with my father, have researched our family tree quite extensively and have gone back as far as the late 1700s.
I want to send my descendants information about me, about my (their) past and about the world as I'm living it in my lifetime.
Four separate time capsules have been created. Each capsule contains different items, such as family history, world history, etc.
I am also including a laptop filled with videos and will be including archive quality DVD media so that, hopefully, the electronic information survives the passage of time.
I anticipate my children, and then their children, opening these capsules and examing and learning from the contents and then perhaps adding their own details and information.
I call this the Futurum Nunc Est project.
