Hire a consulting personal historian —and do it yourself
You may wish to undertake a personal history yourself, creating your own book, video, audio or web-based history—whether for personal or financial reasons. If you are not sure how to organize and undertake such a project, a consulting personal historian can be of great help.
A consulting personal historian can guide you through the writing, filming, or recording of a personal story. The personal historian will create a contract based on the agreed-upon scope of the project and, usually, an hourly rate.
There are also PHNN members who offer classes and workshops aimed at helping those who wish to take on the work themselves. They provide help with guided autobiography, memoirs, equipment use, Photoshop, ethical wills, photo organizing, printing and related skills. Please check the directory to identify a provider in your preferred medium to serve as a consultant.
PHNN does not suggest or provide pricing information, leaving this to each individual personal historian.
