Learn why you should save your life stories—or become one of the growing number of people who help others save their life stories.

What Is Personal History?

Personal histories can be written memoirs, audio or video tributes, autobiographies, biographies, family histories, heritage cookbooks, community histories, corporate and organizational histories, legacy letters, and ethical wills. A personal history can be a book, video, website, scrapbook, photo collage—even a song or a quilt.

Everyone has a story. Every person. Every city. Every organization. Every business.
