A top question we get after pictures are digitized is what next? How to share your nostalgia? As enthusiastic Tales.com raving fans, here is the answer.
Tales.com is the easiest way to record your family’s memories.
Capturing the important stuff is (really) hard. If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably had the feeling that you should write down your parents’ or grandparents’ life stories. But here’s the problem… most people either don’t know where to start or are completely overwhelmed by the thought of it. So we never get around to doing it!
That’s what is so great about Tales.com — they make it super easy to capture your family’s most important memories before it’s too late.
Here’s how it works: Tales has professional interviewers who speak with your loved one to uncover the stories you never knew. Then the conversation gets edited into a professionally-produced, private podcast episode that your family will cherish forever. It’s kind of like if NPR interviewed your loved one about their life and you got to keep the recording all to yourself (or share with the whole family).
And with the holidays just around the corner, Tales is the perfect gift that instantly becomes a beloved family heirloom. In fact, many Tales recipients say it’s the most meaningful gift they’ve ever received!
