They're Not Just Stories.... They're the Start of a Legacy

Your legacy is defined by a series of remarkable moments. Emotional decisions. Cherished relationships. Heartfelt gestures. But your legacy is kept alive through the family stories your loved ones will share when you’re gone.

Family stories define us. They express our values and reinforce our beliefs. Family stories reunite us with loved ones we have lost and they’ll connect us to future generations we’ll never meet. Don’t wait for “someday” to write down and preserve your family stories. Start today. Start creating the stories that will become your family’s legacy.

Whether you’re capturing your own memories, writing a loved one’s obituary, or interviewing a remarkable person in your life – we give you step-by-step guidance to help you start and finish your family story projects.

I’m Overwhelmed.

Not everyone is a writer. Or comfortable with interviewing people. Or has the time to take on a big project. We all have photos, stories, letters, or other cherished family memorabilia we want to preserve. But where do you start? Circa Legacy teams can organize, edit, design, and print beautifully-bound family legacy books for you and your loved ones.
