To begin, you will enjoy a complimentary consultation with the Founder and Chief Word Choreographer of Memories Worth Telling, Debby Mycroft, to determine the scope of work and your final product expectations.
During this meeting you will be guided through choosing a Family Legacy Book (capturing the essence of a family), a Vignette Memory Collection (capturing the highlights of an individual's life), or a Legacy Letter ( creating a personal testimony to impart your morals and values to loved ones). Please note, that Legacy Letters are always incorporated into the Family Legacy Books and Vignette Memory Collections.
All of our products are tailored to your wishes. We do not use formulaic chapter or outline structures. Everyone’s life is unique and our products reflect that. We pride ourselves on offering this customized approach to creating meaningful heirlooms.
Some common examples of how our products are tailored:
Once the scope of work is determined, we will begin the interview process. Typically this focuses on one individual, but may also include additional family members and close friends depending on the defined scope of work.
We use a structured process and in-depth questions to draw-out memories and values.
We encourage families to provide pictures, videos and memorabilia, which can be digitized and included in the book.
With our interview notes and recordings, we will prepare an initial draft. In some cases, follow-up interviews are conducted. The rough draft is submitted to you to review for content accuracy.
The final product is then edited and prepared for printing.
Memories Worth Telling will provide you with 2-3 publishing options (all reflecting and in-line with maintaining our high-quality standards). You will select the binding and publisher of your choice, but Memories Worth Telling will coordinate all aspects of the publishing.
With your “final” product in-hand, we encourage you to remember that life continues. More memories will be made and perhaps your message for your heirs will change. Thus, we encourage you to subscribe to our annual updates package, because, life continues and more memories will be made.
An annual subscription to this package will ensure your story is kept up to date.
