Welcome to Merrill Memoirs.
Let us help you preserve your memoirs and family stories
for generations to come.
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 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, his children did not think to interview him. And he died when I was in college, not yet wise enough to sit down with him and record his stories.
The failure to save my grandfather's stories heartens my desire to help other families preserve their own stories, before they are lost.
Merrill Memoirs conducts in-depth interviews with one or more "storyteller" in order to craft a compelling narrative. Working with a professional genealogist, we enrich the narrative with historical information.
The story may describe a life, a family history, a marriage, or a journey.
It is your story, told in your words.
Many of our clients preserve these narratives in a beautifully designed book, alongside photographs and memorabilia. Families also have the option of purchasing the interviews as edited recordings.
Our clients have great things to say about the experience and the products. See our TESTIMONIALS page.
We offer free telephone or in-person consultations, if you'd like to learn more. Please contact Sarah Merrill
