Share the Gift of Yourself
Each of us has an amazing life! Capture and share your life story with family & friends today and with the generations of tomorrow.
What is a Personal History?
Creating a personal history is about documenting a life – either your own, of other family members, members of your community or an organization. It goes much further beyond genealogy — it captures the stories behind the names, dates and photographs.
We provide people with a joyful experience and peace of mind knowing that their life and stories will be remembered and shared with the generations to come. Keepsake books can be created to capture an entire life, a certain time period, or even a special event. They can also include family stories and recollections of grandparents or other family members.
A life story book is a treasure for the generations to come. It’s an opportunity to pass on the stories from one generation to the next.
