Here are answers to a few of our most frequently asked questions.
who typically has their personal histories written?
There are a wide variety of people who have their personal histories written. Generally, it's someone who is in their "golden years," but this isn't always the case. They may hire the personal historian themselves to chronicle the important events of their lives, or a family member may hire the historian, wanting to preserve the stories that have come to mean so much to them. Many of our books celebrate major life events - mom's 80th birthday, a couple's 40th wedding anniversary, or Joe's retirement after many dedicated years. In addition, we work with family and friends of brain injury survivors to compile books that will help "fill the gaps" in the survivor's memory.
Who benefits from a personal history?
Personal histories benefit the people about whom they are written, as well as their loved ones, and the blessings become evident very early in the process. The subject of the history invariable enjoys the opportunity to walk down memory lane. Their family and friends greatly enjoy their interviews as well, as the process unearths long-forgotten memories. And, of course, the books themselves provide a lasting legacy that will be enjoyed by children, grandchildren, and generations to come.
How much does a personal history cost?
Every person's story is unique, and each of our projects is individually tailored. We will work with you to develop a project plan that suits your needs and your budget, and will provide an estimate of costs, with an agreed upon variance.
