Saving Stories is a personal history service dedicated to preserving your memoirs, milestones, and personal history. Everyone has an interesting story to tell, and we can help you ensure that future generations have a record of what your life was like.
— Ken Burns, The Art of Storytelling
Imagine having access to the life stories of your grandparents, or even your great-grandparents, told in their own words. Just think of the insight you could have into the life circumstances, decisions, and thoughts of the people who helped shape you, whether or not you had the opportunity to know them personally. Who knows how this knowledge might inspire – or caution – you as your own life unfolds.
By recording your own stories and personal history, you can be part of creating a family treasure for future generations.
The stories of your life will be a meaningful gift for your family, friends, and others. Memoir is a way to record your legacy and to preserve and share your stories for future generations. However the process of creating your story can also provide you with an opportunity to reflect on your life. It allows you to pause and make sense of the past. You may become aware of patterns and trends in your life: Who has influenued you the most? What were the pivital points in your life where a decidsion sent you down a path that has shaped the rest of your life? What lessons have you learned from the obstacles you have had to face?
Our clients have four typical profiles:
