Capture Your Story


Ilana Sinclair

Founder of Capture Your Story


Do you wonder how your grandparents met, or what the stories are behind your family's immigration?

I didn't have to, as one of the lucky few to know all four of my grandparents and seven of my eight great-grandparents. Their stories bridged the generations of our family and helped us put our lives into context.

I took this for granted until I met my husband, a descendant of Holocaust survivors. The sad reality was that my husband knew precious little about his family. Countless relatives had perished, and with them, so had his - and now my children's - family history.

It has now become my life's mission to help other families record the stories of their loved ones before it's too late.

At Capture Your Story, we don't just interview your loved ones, but capture their intonation, their expression, and their personality, in order to bring their words to life. You'll feel the warmth of your father's voice and smell your grandmother's famous apple strudel waft up through the page.


In our busy lives, we don't always have the time to sit and hear these stories. Capture Your Story provides the perfect opportunity to set aside some time to reflect, to share, and ultimately feel closer to your loved ones than you ever have before.


You, your children, and future generations will be so grateful.
