About Susan Saunders, Life Story Legacy Video Biographer at Family Line Video in ChicagoSince 2008, I’ve run Family Line Video, LLC as a true labor of love, personally handling all aspects of Family Documentary production, from filming and editing to interviewing and research, treating each family’s story and artifacts as though they were my own.

~ My Story ~

It wasn’t until I lost my grandparents that I realized my children would never have the chance to know them as I had.

In that moment, I saw too how little I knew about my own great grandparents. The few faded photographs we did have, could never reveal the full and significant lives they had led.

About Family Line Video in ChicagoLike any of us, they had dreams, faced hardships and enjoyed success. Without their stories, though, we would never know how their experiences and decisions shaped who they were and, ultimately, how they impacted on who we are today.

Sadly, those stories are now lost forever.

It was then that I understood the importance of capturing stories first hand. While Ancestry.com may be a great tool, it can never replace a parent or grandparent sharing their stories, memories and life lessons in their own words.

About Family Documentaries by Family Line VideoMy vision became to find a way to help families preserve their stories but, most importantly, in a format that would resonate with the younger generations of today.

The answer: to record a loved one on video recounting their memories and then weave in family photos, documents and other memorabilia. A visually captivating memoir on video or a Family Documentary Video.

Family Documentary Packages by Family Line VideoWhether this ‘moving’ portrait focused on an individual, a couple, or an entire family, the end result would be a modern-day family heirloom that would be cherished for generations to come.

In 2008, my vision became a reality with Family Line Video, LLC.

… I write now to say how deeply impressed I was by our gorgeous family portrait you produced. Its editing, organization, technical quality, its consistent thoughtfulness made it FLV FCP Phototruly first-rate, and it brought our parents’ and grandparents’ summertime experiences alive in ways I would have thought inconceivable. Incredible work!” S.Z.
