Derrick Rowe with family history book

Family history books

Have you spent hours, days or even years researching your family’s history but do not know what to do with all the information? The Book of My Life can help you to present the story of your family in a clear and attractive way.

Studying your family’s genealogy can be extremely rewarding. It can be fascinating to look into the lives that went before ours, to see what our great grandparents did for a living or unearth secrets from years gone by.

But the process can leave you with scores of documents, files, folders and photographs that may ultimately end up stuffed in a drawer and forgotten. Wouldn’t it be satisfying to see the information written up into a clear narrative and then presented in book form?

The Book of My Life can help to bring together all the elements that you have unearthed. One of our experienced writers can sort out the information, and then tell the tale in a coherent and entertaining way.

Finally, we can produce an elegant volume of your family’s story. We can even include copies of original documents, a family tree and photographs.


“The book has arrived — what a superb job. I am delighted with it.

Alison has a wonderful way with words. Her patience and dedication to detail were much appreciated.

My family are thrilled and I am sure it will become a family heirloom!”

Derrick Rowe, Kent

Case study

Derrick Rowe created a biography of his late grandfather, the Victorian garden painter Ernest Arthur Rowe, with the help of The Book of My Life.

Derrick had discovered a great deal about his grandfather from government records, personal letters and other documents but wanted some expert help in putting everything together in a comprehensive biography.

We were happy to help and the result is a glossy book, which tells the story of the artist’s life from his days as a penniless student to his successful career as an artist whose work was coveted by royalty. The book also includes a selection of reproductions of Rowe’s sumptuous paintings.
