Life Stories

Life Stories

A personal life story, at it’s simplest, is a writing of stories using your personal life events as the focus on the writing. A life story can be in the form of a memoir, a tribute, an oral history or a video; an autobiography or a biography. A life story can focus on specific life events or it can take the form of a legacy letter or ethical will.

Legacy Keepsakes can assist you in choosing the format best suited for the stories you want to tell.

A book? a letter? a video?
Life stories come in various formats – most often print, audio or video – and are often illustrated with family photos, family trees, or other art work. A life story might be as simple as a few written pages; an audiofile and transcript; or a long and polished book. A life story video might be a short tribute or a full-length documentary. Life stories can also take such unexpected forms as a family cookbook or a photo-art collage.

Legacy Keepsakes can help you with your personal life stories or the stories of your loved ones, family members or friends — whatever the format, whatever the scope
