Your Story, Your Words, Your Voice

You and your loved ones have had some amazing experiences in life. You have stories to tell, experiences to relate, and advice to give. With Recordalife, you will capture your unique and remarkable life story. We interview you using our unique and friendly experience and record your life story in high quality, full colour hardback books and audio CDs, so that your loved ones and future generations can not only read about you in your own words, but also actually hear your unique voice.

All of us have challenges we have met in life and the path we have taken, along with details about our elders and places we have lived. These memories should live on, and having your true story captured forever is both a wonderful experience and an invaluable keepsake.

How it Works

From Friendly Interview to Beautiful Books

1. Welcome Pack & Getting Started

On placing your order you will receive a Welcome Pack which includes both a Welcome Guide telling you what to expect through the process, and a Gift Certificate which you can redeem at any time. It makes a wonderful gift! You will then be able to book your Recordalife Interview either online or by phone for a time that is convenient for you in the days, weeks or months ahead. We will then carefully select one of our experienced Life Recorders and allocate them to you. You will also be given a secure login so that you can upload photos, at your convenience, to be included in your Recordalife book.

2. Your Friendly Interview

Your Life Recorder will call you or visit you at the allotted time and interview you using our unique format in a relaxed and friendly manner. Each interview is approximately 60-80 minutes. If you order Recordalife Extra, there are two interviews. All conversations are kept confidential. We aim for all our interviews to be a highly pleasurable experience - people love telling the story of their lives, and we love listening to them.

3. Production & Approval

Your precious memories and story will be cast into your Recordalife Life Story Pack, providing a permanent record for your loved ones and future generations to cherish and keep. Using our compelling Q&A (Question & Answer) format, we professionally transcribe and expertly edit your interview and produce a high quality hardback book and e-book incorporating your words and the uploaded photographs. We will also produce a CD and MP3 download of the audio recording of your interview. We will layout, proofread and edit this professionally, email you a draft for approval and then print on high quality paper and media.

4. Delivery of Your Life Story Pack

Your Life Story Pack, containing the hardback book, CD and MP3 USB stick, will be delivered to you by tracked courier in an attractive box package as a wonderful gift or memento. Additional copies can be ordered for family and friends at any time. The e-books and audio recordings will also be made available through your secure login account. You will then have completed the recording of your life!
