Life History Video brochureYOUR MEMORIES… YOUR LEGACY… FOREVER

Preserve the memory of the past! Making a Life History Video captures your images and stories forever. Do you ever wish you could have a video of your great-grandmother or grandfather talking about his/her experiences and share all those unique family stories in one organized place? By making a Life History Video, you can preserve your stories for all of the generations to come. These videos, enhanced with vintage family pictures, create a personal documentary that records an oral and visual history of your family tree that is priceless.

A GENEALOGICAL JOURNEY IS A WINDOW INTO THE PAST

How many of us know more than a few generations of our family history? What were your ancestors doing in the year 1800… or the year 1066… or the year 476… or in 1400 BC?

Wouldn’t that interest you? What we offer is a chance for you to explain to your children, grandchildren and all subsequent generations, your beliefs values and unique family heritage. It’s important for all of us to hear and know about our past and to find our place within our family tree. Let your family take a genealogical journey through your eyes so that every family member can have a better understanding of who and where they come from.

Imagine it’s the year 2050… or 2150. Future generations will marvel at how well documented your LIFE HISTORY is, if you have the foresight to do it now.

A TIME CAPSULE FOR THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE AND THE PRECIOUS MOMENTS OF YOUR LIFE

Our most treasured memories are those of our family. Every family has extraordinary moments and even ordinary moments that are special to you. A child is born, grows up, becomes an adult. It all happens so fast! There is time, though, to capture those memories and preserve them for generations. With our help you can preserve all those stories by letting us make a personal biography of your life. For example, we will record you talking about the day your children were born and your earliest memories of their childhood or film your Mother telling you how she met and fell in love with your Father. Treasured memories that would otherwise be lost.

The following video was made for a married couple who are some of the nicest people I have ever met. I got a chance to film a surprise 90th Birthday celebration for a truly inspiring man. He served in World War II, was shot down twice in a B-24, awarded the Flying Cross and a Purple Heart among other citations as he helped liberate Europe in 1944-45. After his military years he went on to become a Emmy Award winning Producer for NBC and a successful CEO. This gentleman has had a very fascinating life and continues to live it to the fullest with his lovely wife. This video shows a glimpse of his life and how some people of his generation should be honored and given our respect for living a memorable life. We can learn a lot from their virtuous example.

Below are a few more examples of the Family Life History videos.

In the following video, I captured my Mother singing, reciting french from a play that she acted in when she was a theatre student and discussing her passion for poetry. You can sense her excitement as she talks about her love of art. A precious recording of a graceful soul.

Before my Mother passed away, I recorded her while she told stories of when her Father took her to the opera at the age of six, her recollections of her Mother, her love of life (joie de vivre) and her personal philosophy. An irreplaceable recording that captures her lovely spirit.
