a way to save your story

The perfect addition to your family & genealogy research


Whose story will last for the next generation?

Personal history interviews help preserve your family stories and traditions. Families used to have letters, diaries, and other written documents from which to construct their personal 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.

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 individual experience. 


What is the process like?

Preserving memories is a personal process. If you have family members with amazing stories to share, this is a comfortable and easy way for them to share their experiences and knowledge in a lasting form.

With decades of interviewing experience, Anne will consult with you and your storyteller to chose question topics and guide everyone through each stage of the project. Check out Packages & Programs to learn more about it.
