Welcome to Life Stories: A project that talks across time to future generations.
LIFE STORIES is a unique project developed by South African based journalist Lisa Chait which gives you or someone you love the opportunity to have their life story expertly captured on DVD, audio CD or as a book and, if you wish, shared instantly with friends and family around the world using our online private or public access facilities.
LIFE STORIES allows you to literally talk across time and speak directly to your children and children’s children. You’ll remind future generations where they came from and gift them with a tangible, priceless link to their ancestry.
Whether it’s the Life Story of a person of any age, a couple, a business or an organisation, our passionate and skilled team of interviewers, videographers, sound recordists, writers, editors and transcribers will help you create a priceless piece of history to enjoy and cherish.
In truth, it’s all about the effort we make today for future generations!
WHAT WE DO
We’ll create a beautifully presented, fully researched hard copy LIFE STORY DVD, audio CD or book for you to give to others and store in a special place.
Then, if you choose, we’ll help you share these stories instantly with family, friends and colleagues around the world by housing them on this site or our Youtube channel – on a public or members-only page. In this way your Life Story will be professionally archived and instantly available to anyone who wishes to view it, wherever they are in the world. It will also be available to future viewers in years to come because, as we know, online is the closest thing we have to forever.
Preserve history now before you are left saying:
“I’m so sorry we didn’t do this when we had the chance”
