Make the Story of

Your Past A Gift for

the Future

Every life is a story. Tell yours and preserve it for future generations to cherish.

Classic Lives provides professional recordings of personal memoirs, family histories and shared remembrances.

With over fifteen years of conducting interviews, published writer Elizabeth I. Acree will record your story in your home or by phone or zoom from anywhere. Your memories will then be preserved on USB, giving those in your future the opportunity to hear the voice of your past.

Preserve Your Past for the Future

No one is too young or too old to create an oral history or personal memoir, be it a complete life story, or a few key experiences, important lessons learned, or a simple reflection to give as a wedding or anniversary gift. It can be whatever you want it to be.

Elizabeth I Acree, a nationally published writer, has been helping people tell their stories for over fifteen years. She has written about and recorded the experiences of people from all walks of life, from professionals to homemakers to U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Penn Warren. Every life is a classic story, and yours will flow freely in the presence of an experienced and trusted listener.

"My friend Kathryn suggested this to me and I was hesitant. But after the recording, I was so glad I did it. I recommend it to everyone."  Eunice H., Black Mountain, NC

“The piece you did on Mother is just beautiful. And now that she is gone, it means all the more.” Bill H., Baton Rouge, LA
