Tell Your Life Story
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 using our unique and friendly experience and record your life story in audio and in a quality hardback book, 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. We can also take existing hand-written or typed memoirs and convert them into our beautiful full colour hardback books.
We are a group of oral historians specialising in the stories of everyone, for we are all a part of history and, in particular, of our family history. 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 in one place for ever more is invaluable.
How We Record and Write Your Life Story
The oral history of a person’s life, covering their childhood, family, personal life, work, experience and their outlook on their life and history, captured forever.
Using years of oral and social history experience, we have developed a unique interview system to find out more about you and your experiences. This combines a mixture of detail you may want your family to know, such as about your grandparents, along with the development of your life and achievements. Our friendly and experienced 'Life Recorders' will interview you in an informal way and chat with you about your life story and family. We also offer this service in multiple languages so that people can speak in their natural and native tongue, with English translation included in the printed book and e-book.
Confidentiality is our highest priority and we guarantee that everything you say to us will be only for your use and consumption and all details will be kept confidential. The books and audio recordings will only be delivered to you or your delegated recipients and will not be published or distributed in any other way.
As experts in oral history services, we pride ourselves in our friendliness, our listening and interview techniques in exploring your past and experiences, and in our professionalism; and in the final products that you will receive. Ultimately, we are enthusiasts in enabling people to share their life experiences, tell their stories, and in providing a treasured record that captures, not just the words, but the voice behind that unique story.
