For as long as I can remember, my family has been asking my Grandma Nettie to write down her stories.
But she'd never gotten around to doing it.
She started writing many times but never got past the first couple pages. And all of a sudden, she was 97 years old and time was running out. I had to find a way to record her stories before it was too late.
And that’s when it hit me. I bought a microphone, drove to her house, and spent an entire afternoon interviewing my grandma all about her life — where she was born, what it was like growing up during the Great Depression, her memories of World War II, and so much more.
These are stories that my family will cherish forever. Stories that I’ll share with my own children and grandchildren one day. And at that moment I realized that if these stories meant so much to me and my family, the same was probably true for other families.
So I teamed up with my friend, Wesley, to create Tales — to give every family an effortless way to capture their most important stories and memories in their own voice.
What started as a way to capture my own grandmother’s stories is now available to you and your family.
Everyone has a story to tell, and it's our mission at Tales to capture every one of those stories before they fade.
