Join host Jenny Stanton as she welcomes Jennifer Sauers and Kristine Woodworth, writers and personal historians who founded Beyond the Trees, offering services to capture one's personal life in written/book form. Kristi and Jennifer take their clients beyond the family tree to unearth and bring together components of one life, preserving memories and events for the future. Beyond the Trees also offers workshops on ethical wills and legacy letters.
The two women recount how technology enabled them to launch their business, now with projects numbering over 50, including contacts in Alaska. They consider "nagging" part of their job in encouraging the writer/historian to get the work done. Also in this episode, listeners will hear how one BTT client, Maria Motch, brought her manuscript - 55 + Isaballa - to fruition. In her book, Maria writes in legacy form to her granddaughter to help her someday "find the living juice"
