Your Parent's Story
What do you wish you knew about your great grandparents, grandparents,
and parents that you weren’t told or can’t remember? Now
imagine seeing their lives in a movie-quality presentation done by
professional television journalists — a family history that
lives, breathes and conveys emotion instead of just lying flat
on a page.
Your parents gave you more than just the color of your eyes and
the shape of your nose. They shaped your ethics, talents and drives.
The way you approach something may very well echo the way your grandfather
or great-grandmother did. Wouldn’t it be great to hear their
stories, convictions and principles on issues that personally affect
you today? You can make that happen for your children and grandchildren.
Stories about your family give your children a sense of identity
and belonging that family trees and history books can’t.
Stories about special events and family members give our children
pride in who they are, help develop their self-esteem and character.
By recording your parent’s stories, your children can always
hear them first-hand. Your parents have amassed wisdom. Stories are
the best way to pass along that wisdom.
Because it captures the whole package — your parent’s
smile and voice as well as their thoughts. Studies have shown that
people remember something more clearly when it has emotional content.
Nothing coveys emotion better than video. You get the “big
picture” – important details that are lost in a small
snapshot are revealed when you see them on a large screen.
As people grow older, their memories fade. If you begin the interview
process now, you will not lament having waited too long.
