The Association of Personal Historians (APH) is a not-for-profit trade association whose members use various media to preserve histories, life stories and memories for individuals, organizations and communities. APH has more than 650 members in the U.S., Canada and other countries world-wide.

The APH Newsroom is where you can find media contacts, news stories about personal history as well as search through a library of press coverage about and by APH members. APH members have appeared across a broad spectrum of publications and media outlets including the Wall Street Journal and National Public Radio.

In addition, writers, editors and researchers can access background and factual information about the association and the work members do.

We welcome your efforts to learn more about our organization. Personal history is a young and still relatively unknown profession. Every instance of relaying information about this service helps build awareness in the public eye and helps individuals, businesses and families capture and preserve their stories in a way that will enrich the next generation.
