Life story services - woman laughing while looking at an old photo

We have found that the best place to start your life story is with personal life story interviews. This page outlines our life story interview services, gift certificates, and pricing. At Evalogue.Life we would be honored to help capture your life story through voice and words. Our headquarters are in Ogden, Utah, but we love to do interviews by phone. Our team is growing into new locations, and we serve clients around the United States.

Why life story interviewing?

  • Compelling research shows how sharing life stories binds families together and inspires future generations.
  • The voice is intimate. We urge you to preserve voice to evoke powerful memories years from now. Do it now, and it will be enough.
  • Oral history is affordable and enjoyable, capturing a life story more easily than you  might imagine. Even if you want to write a full book, starting with interviewing can get the process rolling.

Purchase a gift certificate:

Gift certificates make a meaningful alternative to buying “stuff.” We have many families give their parents, grandparents or partner a life story interview for a holiday or birthday. If a writer or family historian is on your list, consider a coaching session to give their project a boost.

The pricing for life story interviews is:

  •  $137 for 1 interview
  • $127 when purchased in a package of 3 interviews
  • $117 when purchased in a package of 6.

How life story interviews work:

Ideally, life story interviews are conducted in person at your home or in our office, but may also be arranged by phone. We collaborate with you in advance to understand your goals for the interview, then send food-for-thought questions. Interviews are recorded and we handle all the technology and saving of audio files.  Single interviews provide approximately 75 minutes of audio. We take notes and provide those notes to you. Afterward, the interview may be transcribed, written in story form, or made into video at an additional charge if you wish.  Instant gift certificates are available (scroll down to order).
