A personal history can cost anywhere from $1,000 to more than $100,000. This is because a personal history is – well – personal. It can be a simple three-ring binder, an elegant coffee table book, or anything in between.

A personal or family history may include some or all of the following costs:

  • Interviewing
  • Transcription and editing
  • Research
  • Preparing photos
  • Layout & design
  • Printing
