Genealogy is a fundamentally interesting idea—knowing where and whom you come from is interesting at the least. At best, it might help you understand why you are the way you are. But who has time to interview relatives and chase down records, which might be overseas anyway? This is the point at which my interest shuts down. If I were headed to the countries around the North Sea, where my family comes from, you’d better believe I’d be seeking out some more vibrant local color than the shade of paint on the library’s walls.

I might be far more inclined, however, to find genealogy fascinating if all the work was done for me. Amazingly, Legacy Novels offers just this service and more. Turn over your family’s history to the Dallas-based company and they’ll do all the work of interviewing your living relatives to collect their stories and your family lore. After collecting all they can, a team of professional writers will transform your story into a novel, which will be professionally bound with photos, mementos, and whatever else you might like to include. At the very end of it all, they’ll even throw you and your family party to unveil the book. And all you have to do is sit back and enjoy.

The price tag for the project varies depending on how involved it is, but I can imagine how this might be worth the investment as a family heirloom. What kind of story would your family’s history be? A serious epic of hard work and accomplishment? A crime thriller? A sweeping romance? A rollicking adventure?

    Genealogy is a passsion of mine and I can’t even imagine giving up any part of the loving task of putting together my family hisory. That being said, I can understand how some people may not have the time to do all the research necessary [and it certainly does require a lot of time]. A service like the one you mention here can be invaluable to anyone wanting to know and understand who they are and where they come from.
