Welcome to my site. I'm Deborah Tomasetti Perham, a personal/family historian & Certified Legacy Advisor.
When I was a child, the times I enjoyed most were when both my grandmothers would tell me stories of their childhood, growing up in the early 1900s. I loved hearing their stories. They both lived nearly 100 years!, so you can imagine the number of stories I heard through the decades. I became a personal historian as a tribute to my grandmothers, to thank them for the beautiful memories they left me with.
I look forward to working with you, guiding you through the process of preserving your personal history and the history of your family, company, or organization, whether it be through the Life, in a Day® package, video histories, guided autobiography classes, beautifully-bound legacy books illustrated with vintage photographs and recipes, family tree discovery and more. Don't forget your pet friends, too, with Pet Friends Tributes.
Be sure to check out the "Legacy Matters" tab to see all the different ways you can preserve your precious family history.

"When a parent dies, it's the end. I always wanted to chronicle the family history with my mother. I wanted some researchers to talk to my mother, but [she] was a little antsy about it. I know she would have gotten into it. But I wasn't forceful, and I didn't make it happen. That's one regret I have. I didn't get as much of the family history as I could have for the kids." -Robert DeNiro quoted in Esquire Magazine
