Welcome to Merrill Memoirs.
We preserve memoirs and family stories for generations to come.
Because there is no legacy more valuable.
Imagine picking up a beautifully designed book
to read your mother's or your father's, or a grandparent's life story,
told in their own words.
This photo of my maternal grandfather was taken when I was an infant. Eldon Roe was a poet, a farmer, a businessman, a sometimes politician, a doting grandfather, and a consummate storyteller. He was not famous but he had a life's worth of stories that were absolutely worth saving. Unfortunately, as is the case in most families, his children did not think to interview him or record his stories. When he died, when I was in college, I did not yet understand what I'd lost. Today, I do.
The failure to save my grandfather's stories heartens my desire to help other families preserve their own stories,
before they are lost.
THE PROCESS IS SIMPLE: Merrill Memoirs conducts in-depth interviews with one or more "storytellers" in your family, in order to craft a compelling memoir or family history. Working with a professional genealogist, we enrich the narrative with historical information.
It is your story, told in your own words.
(But you don't have to do the research and writing!)
Many of our clients preserve these narratives in beautifully designed books,
enhanced with photographs and memorabilia.
Our clients have great things to say about the both experience and the product.
