New Offering “Audio Journals”

Many people have kept journals over the years. Sometimes it is those journals that are all that is left behind after the writer passes on.  Capturing Legacies can turn written journals into recorded audio stories.  Did your great grandparent keep a journal?  What would it be like if you could listen to their words. Our experienced voice over talent can take the written words and present them with character and vibrancy like the original author, making them come to life.

In the Calgary Herald this morning there was an article regarding Deirdre and Ian Harris and their $1-Million legacy gift to the Calgary Public Library foundation.  Along with the other individuals and companies who have donated, we want to say thank you.  Not because it has anything to do with Capturing Legacies Inc., in fact it doesn’t, but because it is an incredible gift to the world.  Anything that encourages or preserves the stories of every day people is a good thing for humanity.

Much of human history is told by politicians, the media, and people who bend and twist things to suit their needs.  We believe that history should be told by those who lived it!  Our mandate is to capture people’s stories.  Those stories that tell you who the person was, and what their life was like.

One of our first clients, Catherine Mitchell, wrote her life story in four volumes and yet she has no children or family to pass them on to.  Thanks to the generosity of the people and companies that have donated to the CPL’s Shared History Program, presumably everyone will be able to have a permanent home for the physical books that are their life stories.

For the electronic version of Catherine’s story, please visit our self-guided life story application: AStoryNotForgotten.com.  Even better, sign up for you own free account and start writing YOUR story.  If you need help writing your story, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We can help you do it yourself, or alternatively, we can do all the work for you.

Holiday Memories

The holidays are upon us. As we visit with our families, eat too much and hope that Santa brings us something wonderful, consider that you are adding to your life story.

If you are lucky enough to have your parents or grandparents with you this year, I hope they tell you more of their stories.  Many people don’t have the option to hear those tales, life lessons and adventures, and they would give anything to be able to.  You are truly blessed if you have them to listen to.

Even better, consider capturing their legacy so those stories can be told for many years to come.  Share them with your children, grandchildren and future generations.  We can help you with your life story project.  Perhaps you might consider giving a Capturing Legacies life story project to someone you love as a very special gift.  It wouldn’t just be for them either, it would be a gift for your family and all those future family members that haven’t even arrived yet.

Regardless of what you do, enjoy this special, and magical time of year.  From all of us at Capturing Legacies, Happy Holidays!  May you have a wonderful end of the year and a happy and prosperous New Year!
