"I want to thank you for the smooth process you provided in the publishing of my father's memoirs. Your patience and prompt responses with my questions were invaluable. Having had no experience, I felt I could trust and rely on your expertise, and we were thrilled with the final product!" -- Mary Jane Santeiro

Dalene Bickel, personal historian and owner of Lasting Legacies, skillfully writes biographies that capture both the client's voice and the reader's interest. Learn more about the process she uses to create custom personal histories.

Do you possess treasured oral history recordings that you would like to convert into an heirloom book? Lasting Legacies also offers transcription services.

"Our family history consisted of a few books written by my wife's mother (she is now 92). One of these books was only available on tape - we were able to retrieve the original from the Library of Congress. The tapes were old cassettes that had many problems with the clarity. Parts of the book were only in Italian.  Dalene was able to accurately transcribe the 5 tapes and provide enough information of the damaged parts of the tape to allow us to complete the manuscript. I would highly recommend her for any project that involves transcripts of oral history."
-- Larry Kelly
