lhb_sample_photo_1LIFE HISTORY BOOKS

At last, an opportunity to put your family’s story in print! I love the concept of this company and think you will not want to miss out. For a limited time the company is offering 30% discounts. See pricing below.

How many times have you thought about getting your family and personal history down in print, or wanted a loved one to do so?

Life History Books works with you to develop a custom-made, archive-quality book that can be passed down through the generations as a treasured heirloom.

lhb_sample_photo_4Memoirs: As a memoir service, they interview you or whomever the client is and then text from the transcribed interviews is laid into an elegant book, interspersed with personal photographs and other mementos. The result is a stunning, professionally-finished family treasure. They can also interview an additional loved one to fill in gaps or merely to add a second perspective. Books can be focused on specific experiences, such as immigrating to a new country or becoming grandparents. Baby books – tales from a baby’s first years – are also popular.

lhb_sample_photo_6Tribute Books: As a tribute book service, the company interviews 1-12 people who speak about a person being honored. Photos and other memorabilia are laid into a book along with the text. Tribute books make an excellent surprise gift or remembrance for a loved one who has passed.

lhb_sample_photo_5Book designs are fully personalized, from the cover’s appearance to font size. Every detail is in the client’s control, including the book length, and a proof is approved before the book goes to print. The process itself is enjoyable and meaningful, and it typically takes about one month.

Life History Books is the first company with highly skilled and experienced personal historians spread throughout the world. They offer a wide variety of packages to meet your needs and budget. Audio CDs of the interviews are available, as well as extra book copies. Books may be updated over time.

Finesse Your Family Tree

th_scotland_bagpipePerhaps your children spent some of this holiday with relatives who were not born in the United States. Well I’ve got just the perfect way to help you delve into your family’s past. In our home, a copy of My Heritage Book arrived just in time for my third-grader’s Family Pilgrim project at school. He began asking questions about which of his grandparents or great grandparents came to America from another country.

sample2My Heritage Book (KidsHeritage Inc.,, $39.95; ages 5 and up) by Deanna Bufo Novak with beautiful watercolor pictures by Alicia Bresee, helps children embrace their heritage and is sure to become a treasured keepsake. In this personalized book, children foray into the past to learn about their family’s ancestry with more than 60 countries to choose from. My Heritage Book also includes a letter to the child from the person(s) purchasing it, the child’s birth date, the child’s name throughout, a glossary, and pages where the child can fill in his or her own family’s traditions and a family tree. Each book contains up to th_ar_mapfour countries, making this an ideal gift for multi cultural families. The ordering process is easy: simply go online, choose up to four countries of origin (see website for complete listings), then fill out the required fields with the child’s first, middle and last name. There are also prompts for the child’s birth date and a closing for the letter on the first page (i.e. We Love You!) along with names for the closing letter (i.e. Mommy & Daddy).
