What Is Personal History?
Personal history is the process of saving the story of a life. This can take many different forms: it could be a memoir, a tribute, a life story, an autobiography, a biography, or an oral history. It may also be a legacy letter or ethical will.
What Do Personal Historians Do?
Personal historians help clients (individuals, families, communities, businesses, or organizations) preserve memories, images, voices, stories, and histories.
We bring an objective eye to the material, helping our clients focus and narrow down what began as an overwhelming project. The final product will have a level of professionalism that goes beyond what the client could achieve alone.
