Capturing life stories one story
at a time

Give the past a future today. Let the Forget Me Not Life Stories team capture your personal or company history before it's lost.
Our writers are based throughout New Zealand, so there is someone in your local area.

Family and Personal History

Preserve important family stories and memories and help others discover the experiences that shaped you.
A life story goes beyond the names and dates on a family tree, it puts a human face on historic events and shares your lessons.
Forget Me Not Life Stories writers capture the stories behind the facts and infuse the past with vitality - giving the past a future today.

Company History

Capturing the journey of your company leaves a record of how you succeeded and what mattered to you. It is less about the financial bottom line and more about honouring your past and committing to the future.  A company history reflects the values that guided, and continue to guide your company and the people, communities, and customers that make it strong.
You can celebrate your company‚Äôs many successes while honouring the efforts and relationships that made them possible.  Tell your brand story and preserve your company history today. 


We recognise that some people prefer to handle their own life story project themselves. However, queries often pop up about their project and a little bit of guidance is needed - and that's where Forget Me Not Life Stories come in. We understand that writing your life story or family history is no easy undertaking, and we've designed a FREE E-book with some tips to help you get started.
Our mentoring and life story writing coaching service is also available, and we can assist you by phone, through video or face-to-face meetings.

"Love what you do"

Barbara Wilson, a weaver and spinner, has written 'From Tragedy to Success' with the help of Forget Me Not Life Stories, telling a personal story of great tragedy and loss, and how she managed to overcome it and rebuild her life.
"When I was first introduced to Kate McCarthy I knew I was going to enjoy working with her in all aspects of the book.  Now that it is printed with fantastic feedback, I would recommend Forget Me Not Life Stories to anyone."
