Is there a story that gets shared at every family gathering?  A life story or voice you want to preserve?  Maybe you have a photo with a juicy story. We have the power to decide how we save, preserve and shape the stories we tell about our lives. Recording oral histories with someone in your family or community provides an archive of stories, a collection of audio gems to honor a life, to offer blessings for future generations and to bring deeper meaning to our lives.

Through facilitated dialogues, GEMS Oral Histories & Audio Storytelling will walk you through the process of collecting audio stories with members of your family or community and deciding how you want to share or preserve those stories. Oral history recording can be virtual or in person.

Now is the moment – let’s get started!

“Elena is helping my family capture my grandmother’s 99-year life story. During our consultation call she gracefully and thoughtfully covered every important detail, making me feel confident that our final product will be meaningful and high-quality. Elena’s professional experience shines through, as does her deep understanding of the human condition. I am so looking forward to moving through this project with her help and find myself thinking of all the ways I might want to use her service in other areas of my life.”
