First Edition Memoirs

Another shout-out to the art of personal history!


I was just reading this lovely book about ways to honor and remember those we have lost, and to my delight, one chapter recommended hiring a personal historian to help surviving family members preserve stories and memories about their loved one. I’m delighted to see that personal history work is getting so much attention these days; I meet so many people who say things like, “I wish we’d had someone write down my Dad’s life story, because he was an amazing guy – but I didn’t know there was a service like that available.” So thanks for the shout-out, Ms. Gilbert!
