A Personal History Business

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.
