Oickos is a variation of the word oikos, meaning family or household in Greek. With Oickos, we hope to pass on meaningful stories and memories about an individual's family members so that their future generations can access, collect, and share their family history. That way, grand children or great grand children or great great grand children will have access to stories about their family members that they were not able to meet and know their own family history from a more vivid perspective. We wish to allow individuals to upload and share their stories about a loved one, provide an accessible way to pass on those stories to others who may not have convenient access to family photos, documents, stories or artifacts. Oickos is a web platform designed to be easy to use, visually appealing and hold meaningful content.
