Members of the media should contact Stephanie Kadel Taras, 2017 APH president, with inquiries regarding the Association or our members' work.
The Association of Personal Historians promotes personal history in the belief that the story of every person, family, community, and organization should be recorded and shared. The Association sets professional standards for our members. We provide professional development for the world's personal historians, particularly through programs at our annual conference.
The majority of APH members own and operate small businesses, often out of their homes. Our members assist clients in telling and saving their stories. These clients may be individuals, families, businesses, churches, schools, organizations, or communities.
Our members receive media attention locally and throughout the world. They have appeared in well-known publications such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Money magazine, and MORE magazine. You can view articles featuring our members in the APH Newsroom.
