Legacy Video Questions

Legacy Video questions by Family Line VideoGrandparents are the overlooked jewels 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 Videographer, my job is to capture their stories 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.

  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.

    Legacy Video Questions by Family lIne Video ChicagoLearn about your great, great-grandparents by asking your grandparents about them. What they did for a living 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?
    Legacy Video Questions by Family Line VideoWhat 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 wonderful 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?
