Memory Man assists families to
record the precious memories of their older folk. An informal tape
recorded interview over a few hours will ensure your family has
a lifetime of memories as keepsakes forever. Memory Man will arrange
the interview, ask the questions and do all the work to produce
the oral and written histories. Recording older people’s
memories accords them time and respect while shedding light on
another time in history.

are fully logged. All tapes and disks are labeled and contain colour
photographs of the interviewee. To safeguard the recordings against
possible damage or loss, Memory Man produces a minimum of two sets
of tapes/disks, one master set and at least one copy for other
