Personal Historian Services

Do you want to create a personal or family memoir to pass to your children or tell the story of your company or organization?

Do you want to create a book to celebrate an anniversary, wedding, birth, or other special occasion?

Do you want to be sure that your children and grandchildren know the "real" you? Sometimes, it can be hard to find the time to just sit and talk, to share experiences and idle memories. Not everybody is a natural storyteller but everybody has stories to tell.

A personal history from Ardith can help you bring memories to life by telling your story, in your own words.

All you have to do is talk. We'll do the rest.

Create Your Personal History

Working with a personal historian, you can share your memories and all the valuable lessons you've learned throughout your life with your children and grandchildren, your friends and community. A friendly, experienced interviewer will sit down with you, asking the questions we've designed to draw out the details that make every story interesting. We'll record the conversation, then transcribe, edit, and write your life story. A personal historian can preserve your voice, arranging and expressing your ideas with style.

Your life story book can be as simple or as elaborate as you like, depending on your budget and your wishes. We'll get started by having a conversation free-of-charge and with no obligation, to establish exactly what you are looking for in your book. Sometimes children or grandchildren commission a personal history to honour their parents or grandparents. We are happy to produce these kinds of books, with the consent and cooperation of the subjects, of course!

Celebrate your life or the life of someone you love with a beautiful personal history from Ardith....


Life Story, Personal History, and Family History

A life story is a comprehensive story, involving a number of people and events over the course of a lifetime. A Life Story, Personal History, or Family History includes interviews from a number of people within and close to your family.

Life Letters

You have spent a lifetime gathering wisdom, making decisions, building a home and perhaps a business. Now, wouldn't you like to pass all that knowledge on to your children and grandchildren? Of course, they'll walk on their own path, but you can offer some guidance along the way.

A life letter is a non-legal document that records your personal values, beliefs, life lessons, hopes and wishes for your family, friends, and community.


A memoir is a description of an event, a time period, a person, or selected scenes from your life. It may be one brief sketch, several unconnected tales, or a lifetime's memories. We can help you capture this.

Special Occasion Tributes

For a special occasion such as a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, or retirement, we can help you create a lovely book or other memory project to celebrate the event.

Business, Organization, and Community History

We can record the stories and dreams of the dynamic people who created a company, an organization, or a community. These histories help preserve the stories of schools, clubs, family businesses, corporations, towns, historical societies, and religious and ethnic communities.

About Our Personal Historians

Our personal historians are experienced journalists and broadcasters with a genuine interest in people and their life stories. We don't do dry genealogical research or produce complicated family trees. What we love to do is to take the raw material of a conversation and shape it into a fascinating portrait, of an individual, a family, an organization, or a community. Tell us your story and we'll show you who you are.
