How are you going to save your family story?

Personal history interviews help preserve your family storeis and traditions. Historians and families used to have letters, diaries, and other written documents from which to construct their family history.  But in today’s world, digital communication has replaced those valuable historical records. Unless it is purposefully documented much of the personal experience of the last century will be lost for families in the future.

Anne provides a personal and comfortable interview experience for you or your family storyteller that will provide a lasting document so that there will be a record of someone's own words sharing his or her personal experience. 


How to get those memories preserved

We would all like to be remembered for who we really are. Facts and dates are important, but they rarely capture a person's motivation or personality.

The gift of sharing personal experience is a way to connect people with unique memories, experiences, and life lessons. Anne's topic based approach helps break down the biography process into a manageable parts. Here are just a few topic ideas to consider for your storytelling experience.  

• Hometowns & Childhood or Family Traditions 

• Military or Civil Service Experiences 

• Courtship and Love Stories: Perfect for anniversary gifts

Or better yet, consider customizing your topic!
