About

Alisha Morgan is a personal historian and the owner of Paperclipped Memories, LLC. Her business helps individuals and families preserve their life stories in printed hard- or softcover books. Alisha’s knows her clients love their families, and recognize the importance of safeguarding their history and heritage for the next generation. She helps clients save time and eliminate frustration by doing the hard work herself—interviewing, writing, and book design—so they can enjoy more quality time with the ones they love.

Business Beginnings

In early 2010, Alisha began searching for her mom’s paternal relatives. Her mom knew next to nothing about her father’s family. After signing up on Ancestry, Alisha became absorbed with the research process, and eventually branched out to researching other parts of her family when her Callahan roots hit a brick wall. At the same time, she questioned her mother and paternal grandparents about their lives, looking for more research clues. Alisha discovered a growing interest in writing down their stories, and her involvement with recording personal history developed from there. She loved hearing and writing stories before researching her genealogy. She never imagined this series of events would lead her to opening Paperclipped Memories, LLC, a personal history ghostwriting business.

Business Name

When Alisha scrapbooks, she paperclips stacks of photos together when categorizing them, and lowering the odds of misplacing one or two. One night, while scrapbooking some of her mema’s old black and white pictures, it occurred to her how odd it was to have her mema’s memories paperclipped together in multiple tidy piles. Hence the name Paperclipped Memories.

Note: Never leave photos paperclipped together! Clips leave indentations on the pictures if left that way for an extended period of time. They may also rust.
