Every day each of us experiences thousands of things, small or big, and each is a story.

These short or mundane daily experiences may not make it to the headline news. But your experiences and stories are the legacy that will draw your children and grandchildren closer and feel a sense of connection and understanding of who they are.

Close your eyes and see your grandparents, 50 years ago, eating their breakfast, stepping onto the bus to go to work, reading the evening paper, laughing with friends at the local pub. 

It’s the little stories that bring life into focus, create a sense of belonging and make history more complete. 

What clothes we wear is a story. What we eat is a story. How we communicate is a story. All these stories complete our larger story.

The Beginning

Hi, I’m Jean McGavin, founder of History Chip. I am a baby boom baby, coming of age in the age of Aquarius, the Cold War, the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam war, rock and roll, women’s liberation; part of a generation politicized like no other. The inclusive mission of History Chip is in my generational DNA.

History Chip offers every person on this planet the opportunity to have their voice heard and included in the story of our world. This is a letter of peace and love to every human and an open invitation for you to be recognized for the nobility and truth of your experience.

Make your voice Matter


Imagine the voices of women, people of color, LGBTQ, displaced and other marginalized people taking their places in history. Imagine a history where the stories of life in all countries and communities are treated equally, and no one is left out.

History Chip is building this inclusive history with your help and your voices.
