The Billie Davids Story

The Billie Davids Story

The Billie Davids Story is a very typical example of a life story family history film project that got started because a daughter knew that her dad was the only person alive who knew the family’s stories.

Shelley Z. and her brother contacted Heirloom Films and Storybooks but they were concerned that interviewing their dad would be difficult because Billie has a “strong personality”.

Personal historian Cory Bretz especially loves interviewing people with “strong personalities” because they have meaningful and defined values and are usually excellent storytellers. In the case of Billie Davids, the two got along well and Billie settled into telling stories that even his children had never heard.
