Imagine sometime in the future, one of your descendants finds your video and discovers you and your family! This is your chance to inspire the next generation. 

Great Grandchildren Will Want To Know

Give your mom and dad and grandparents the opportunity to pass on your family history. Someday your great grandchildren will want to know who their ancestors were. How will you tell them? How will you remember?

Video interviews with the elders of your family whether made into a book or film will become a treasured heirloom for your family forever.

Why would you have your parents interviewed?

Because they know your family’s stories.

They know in detail who your grandparents were and the challenges and triumphs that your ancestors experienced in creating a better life for you.

Your parents also know the stories and names of the people in that old photo collection.

Don’t be like those people who have waited too long to record the stories of their family. Alzheimer’s, dementia, strokes, hip replacements, and heart attacks can instantly steal your loved ones and those stories are lost instantly.

By having your parents and grandparents interviewed on video, you’ll have a film that will be the most amazing gift your family has ever received.
