YourStory, Inc. resource
Isabel and David Andrews believe that everyone has a story to tell. They began their company YourStory, Inc. in order to preserve those special memories, using the customer's own words and pictures. Options are The Tribute (created through several interviews with people whose lives have been impacted by the tribute subject; a mock newspaper style article is created and comes beautifully matted and framed), Milestones (your reflections on your happiest moments or the situations that made you in to the person you are today are captured in a classically-bound book), and Life Story (an elegantly-bound book is written from three to four hours of in-person interviews; sections can include themes such as childhood, finding your vocation, meeting your spouse, and life-changing events.) The Milestones and Life Story options also include a rough, unedited audio CD of the interview(s). These look like lovely keepsakes, ultimately priceless but perhaps pricey upfront. The owners are based in Naperville, IL and the website does not state how far interviewers will travel; it's safe to assume that most clients are from the Chicago area.
