Yesterday’s Memories For Books and Preservation.

Why you should consider Yesterday’s Memories?

Possibly Endless Bins and Piles of History and Memories that just need a Home.
  • Have you been wondering what your family history is but feel you just do not have the time or knowledge needed to start the search?
  • Are you so overwhelmed by the volume and chaos of your family history assets that you put off doing anything useful with them? Yet have a deep seated interested in getting those inherited items recorded, organized and preserved.
  • Perhaps you are very organized and have a family tree program, written stories and gathered photos. Now you just need someone to put it all together in a beautiful book for future generations.



Yesterday’s Memories is my own personal venture to supply a service that brings history to life in Legacy books and calendars.

A Great & Affordable Way to Get it Done.

Here is my Step by Step process to ensure your product is personalized:

  1. Getting To Know You – I will meet with you to get a thorough understanding of your project; goals and budget. I will advise you throughout the process. I’ll gather names, dates and places, and other details needed in order to put together your family tree or perhaps use the materials you already have.
  2. Document and Preserve – I would love to see every picture or memory recorded and used for your product but sometimes this can not be the case. We will walk through your documentation together to determine what is best for you book or calendar. Any documentation or items that are received to make the product can be documented, archived and preserved for you and for generations to come. Your items will be returned to you with a hardcover archive book.
  3. Content – I’ll design, write, and edit to make sure your book reflects everything we discussed along the way to ensure the end product is a success.
  4. Publish – A gorgeously illustrated genealogical book complete with pictures and stories of your cherished ancestors along with supplemental historical background information. Ancestry books vary greatly in length/complexity and cost; I can design a package to fit your needs.

Tell me about your project. All of my services are customized to meet your vision or maybe it’s simply a thought that needs a little creative touch to bring it to life.
