Create a legacy book

Do you know the stories of your parent’s life? What kind of childhood did they have? What about their ancestry, their careers, travels and experiences?

There are many dimensions to a person over a lifetime and you may only know a fraction of who they are or were. And by the time grandchildren are old enough to be interested, family stories and knowledge have disappeared, but not anymore.

Bookform enables anyone to collate the stories of their life, or their loved one’s life, into a print-ready digital memoir book.
