Life on Record - Like voicemail for your personal history/memoirs. Life on Record has created a system where friends and family members can call in and record stories, memories or well-wishes for certain occasions.

I've used this service with my siblings to record a memory CD to give to our parents for Christmas. We had such an enjoyable time that the four of us have decided to "meet-up" on the phone monthly and record our conversation.

Once we finished recording, I easily downloaded the audio files to my iTunes account. From there I recorded it to CD. All done!

It is set up to record an unlimited amount of conversation, but does it in 30 minute increments.

This services is a personal favorite.
