About Heidi White               

As a child I loved listening to stories and looking at old photos. It didn't matter who was in the story or photograph; it was hearing about the people in them that fascinated me most. In school, my early interest in English grammar and writing transpired into a journalism degree, and I continued editing and writing for business, travel, technical and academic institutions for many years.


In 2009, I began writing a memoir about my dad growing up in Germany during the 1930s and 40s. After reviewing the manuscript, my father decided he wanted to tell a very different story. Together we uncovered old diaries, photos and his personal recollections, and he told the story he wanted to tell. His enthusiasm and energy for the project were boundless and the finished booklet a priceless gift for his children, grandchildren and generations yet to come. 


I look forward to speaking with you about documenting your stories, photos and memorabilia, so you and your family may enjoy them now and in the future. In addition, I am happy to provide professional writing, editing and transcribing services for all your documentation needs.
