Frequently Asked Questions

What's the purpose of StoryCall? What's the benefit of doing this?

My grandfather passed in 2011. I always regret that we never captured his stories. StoryCall helps you avoid that same regret for elders in your family. We do this by interviewing you (and the elder) at your convenience and keeping the recordings on a private website. The entire family can join and send questions. It’s journaling 3.0 and your kids will cherish the fact that you preserved those priceless stories.

What do I get as a member?

As a member, you get a designated interviewer and a private website. Based on when you schedule your StoryCalls, your interviewer will host 30-min calls, ask great questions and record everything. The website allows you to invite family members, schedule the call, send in questions and listen to the recordings.

Who are the interviewers?

Our interviewers come from all walks of life with one thing in common — they love capturing stories from elders. Our interviewers are journalists, students, moms, senior living experts... the list goes on. Every interviewer goes through our selection process and training program. When they connect with your family, they're ready to go!

Will we have the same interviewer with every StoryCall?

Yes. That's the goal. We want them to get to know your loved one over time. The only exception is if our interviewer leaves the program or if you choose to leave the program. Otherwise, they'll become a part of the family.

What types of questions are asked?

Our interviewers are equipped with all types of questions. They ask about parents of your loved one, hometown, childhood years, meeting their spouse, etc... They also have a database of historic events that your loved one may have lived through. And, most importantly, family members are encouraged to ask questions, either on the call or through the app.

How much does it cost?

StoryCall is currently free for a limited time for those who sign up for our beta program. We are open to your feedback on what you think is reasonable for the cost of a single StoryCall or a package of calls.

Who has access to the site and calls?

Only people who are invited can join the calls and view the stories. It's all private. Family members have complete control.

Can I add photos and videos to the site?

Not yet! Over time, there will be a series of features including 'do-it-yourself' recording, photos, video, etc.

Why can't families do this on their own?

You can, but it’s time consuming and rarely happens. We’ve all faced that regret. StoryCall makes it easy and makes sure it happens. We make capturing stories a conversation. Plus, you can include the entire family.
