Family History Book

Tell your family's story now
for future generations.

Every family has stories. Family history books and life story books can capture and preserve your research for generations to come. 


Family History books can: 

  • Detail the family immigration or emigration story 

  • Compile family anecdotes of significant people, places, or traditions

  • Situate your family in a broader social, cultural, and historical narrative

  • Learn about yourself by better understanding your heritage seeing your past in new ways

Making a family history book is a decision you'll never regret.

As our clients put it...

More than just a trip down memory lane, this project has been a treasure hunt, taking me in many directions, (rabbit hole!) and Mali's knowledge, skill, and intuitive strategy have guided me along the way to make stronger connections with my family's past.

In the process of putting this book together, I have reached a sense of resolution and found unexpected echoes of his life on my own. I am reminded of Kirkegaard’s words: “Life can only be understood backward, but it must be lived forwards.”
