**Involve the whole family!**
What do you know about your Parents’ history? Your Grandparents? What will your kids know? Who will remember?
Whether you’re considering doing a memoir for yourself or trying to inspire a loved one to tell their story, do it now while everyone's vibrant and alive! Stories from long ago won't change in 5 years. But they may be lost. Why not preserve them, starting today? And make it a fun family affair!
We know … writing a memoir *used to be* a big project — something people might do "someday".
With LifeTales, we've made it fun and easy! Here’s how:
>> INSTEAD OF DOING A LOT OF SLOW TYPING:
Create stories using any combination of pictures, video, video-selfies, audio voiceovers on pictures. And yes, you can type too!
>> INSTEAD OF HAVING TO SIT DOWN AT A DESK:
Use your mobile phone, your tablet or your computer — or all three — to create or view stories at any time. Your Memoirs are all stored in the cloud for easy access and safe preservation. Of course, you can also download them to your hard drive any time for your own personal storage.
>> INSTEAD OF CREATING A FULL BOOK BEFORE SHARING (a long project!):
Create short stories on specific memories or reflections (see a few examples below). Then share immediately with family.
>> INSTEAD OF HAVING TO ORGANIZE AND PLAN IN ADVANCE:
Just create any story that comes to mind. Then date and tag it, so it shows up in the right place in the right order.
>> INSTEAD OF WONDERING WHAT TO TALK ABOUT:
Your family can use our video request feature to request stories about things they'd like to know. And the answers often lead to more questions!
Whether the memoir is about you or a loved one, there’s magic in being asked a question — especially if it’s from a child or grandchild.
Also, we’ll also send you regular ideas on topics many people find interesting.
>> INSTEAD OF SPENDING MANY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO HIRE A WRITER
First capture and share your content today digitally. If you want to create a book some day, we’ll connect you with a service to help you refine your story and then print it. Your cost will be much lower than hiring a ghostwriter from scratch since your content will already exist!
**Don’t wait until it’s too late. Whether it's for you or a loved one, start creating a memoir today, one short story at a time.**
Free for all users. In-app purchases will be offered at a future date.
Just a few sample ideas for questions:
• Who was your Mom’s best friend growing up and what were some of their stories?
• What was your Dad’s first full time job? How did he get it? What can he tell you about it? Any life lessons?
• Who was the most important influence on your Grandfather’s life and why?
• Why did your Grandmother’s family immigrate? Any special immigration stories? Stories from the old country?
Memoir isn’t the summary of a life; it’s a window into a life.

You live inside your parents’ lives until one day, they live inside yours

"There is no death, daughter. People die only when we forget them", my mother explained shortly before she left me. "If you can remember me, I will be with you always."
― Isabel Allende, Eva Luna
