Have you ever thought about capturing your life story and family history for your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to know? One fun and easy way to ensure future generations will know you and your story is to share it in a Legacy Video.

Below are a few reasons why these memoirs on video have become the new favorite way in which to capture one’s memories.

Life Story in a Legacy Video

~ It’s Easy! ~

Often, when someone sits down to write their autobiography, they discover it’s far more difficult than they expect. Writing the events of one’s life on paper tends to make them sound more like a history book than heart felt elocutions. Written memoirs can also take months, even years, to write with the note taking, organization, editing, and re-writing.

With a Legacy Video, you simply share your memories in an interview and let the producer do all the work. Not only will you be able to recount your stories more naturally in an interview, but your personality, body language and voice will bring them to life in a way the written word often struggle to do.

~ It Appeals to Younger Generations ~

For those among us who can still remember a time before the internet, cable t.v., and smart phones … books, journals and letters were an important part of our lives. We relied heavily on the written word, augmented only by a few faded photos, to pass down our stories and family history. These days, however, younger generations are more screen oriented. Recording your life story and memories in a Legacy video gives younger family members a more visually captivating way to know you and your story.

~ It Keeps On Giving ~

While you may not be around to get to know your great, great-grandchildren, it doesn’t mean they can’t get to know you. But relying on your children to ensure your life story is shared can be a little risky. What do you remember about your own grandparents? Which of their stories have you passed on to your own children? When we try to re-tell someone else’s story, we never quite capture the essence of our loved ones’ personality, who they were and the original way they told their stories. A Legacy Video can.

~ It’s Easy To Duplicate ~

As a family grows, it becomes more difficult to decide who gets the various heirlooms. Who gets the box of old photos, the family bible or the grandparent’s good china? Legacy Videos are easy to duplicate so everyone can have a copy of the movie for their own. Your life story and memories are one of the best gifts you could possibly pass on … and it doesn’t matter if you have twenty family members or two hundred!
