It's Not For Us, It's For Our Children.
Hearing stories about your ancestors can be a delight. To see and hear them tell their own story is something else entirely. A Heritage Video lets younger generations truly understand their family history by hearing from those who lived it out. It gives them the chance to see and hear traits that they might have themselves; in the way they talk, laugh, move their hands... When considering a Heritage Video consider your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
What is a Heritage Video?
A Heritage Video is an interview with you or someone you love, filmed and preserved for generations to come.
Tinker talks about the selflessness of her grandfather.
Cousin Johnny's Miracle
Joe reminisces about a transaction he shared with his cousin Johnny.
These are small excerpts from Heritage Video segments. Full segments are 8-15 minutes long and the final interview can yield 8-15 segments.
Younger generations will be able to look back and learn from their ancestors.
Pass down Your Family's Culture
You can give your children not only the knowledge but the understanding of your family's traditions and cultures.
Stories told by word of mouth can change overtime, but a video can keep its integrity and character in tact.
You ask The Questions
WHILE WE HAVE MANY GENERIC QUESTIONS TO ASK DURING THE INTERVIEW, IT'S UP TO THE FAMILY TO HELP MAKE IT PERSONAL. FAMILY MEMBERS ARE PROVIDED A Digital FORM WHERE ALL OF THEIR QUESTIONS CAN BE COLLECTED AND USED IN THE INTERVIEW. The process is easy and can be done on any device.
