Legacy Video Questions by Family Tree Video

Grandparents are the overlooked treasures of our families. Too often, our busy lives keep us focused on the present and we forget the priceless family history, life stories and sage advice they hold.

As a Legacy Video producer, my job is to capture their stories for their families so knowing what questions to ask is key. Below are a few of my favorite Legacy Video Questions.

To learn more about your grandparent’s life story and your family history, ask the legacy video questions below.

Legacy Video Questions

  1. What do you remember about your own grandparents?
    In the past, it was common for multiple generations of a family to live together. Chances are, your grandparents lived with their grandparents at some point. Learn about your great, great-grandparents by asking your grandparents to share their memories of them. What they did for a living, where they were born and to recount some of their favorite memories. Ask if they remember their grandparents talking about the family history. While Ancestry.com is a great resource, a grandparent’s memories can be even better! 
  2. What do you remember about your parents?
    This time, ask your grandparents to describe their parents, their favorite memories of them, the best advice they ever gave and so on. Don’t be afraid to ask questions as a little probing can often reveal a treasure trove of priceless information.
  3. How did you spend your free time?
    What did children do before television, computers, cell phones and scheduled activities? Discover how your grandparents spent their free time and you may find yourself longing for a time before modern technology. Be sure to give them time to think as recalling one memory often triggers many more stories.
  4. What was your greatest challenge?
    Everyone faces hardship at one or more times in their lives. Learning what challenges a grandparent faced and overcame will give you a better understanding of who they are as well as lessons to reflect on when facing your own hardships.
  5. How did you meet your spouse?
    Get ready to smile! Ask your grandparents to share the story of how they met and to show photos from their early years together. Ask if they could have ever imagined when they first laid eyes on each other that you would be asking these questions today.
