Have you ever thought about recording your life story for your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to know?
If so, one fun and easy way to ensure your story will be around for generations to come is to record it in a Legacy Video. Below are a few reasons why memoirs on video are fast becoming the new favorite way for individuals and families to preserve their stories.

- It’s Easy
Often, when a person sits down to write their autobiography, they discover it’s far more difficult than they expect. Writing the events of one’s life story 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 with an interviewer and they do all the hard work. Not only will your stories come out more naturally in an interview, but your facial expressions, body language and personality will breathe life into them in a way words on paper 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 in a visually captivating Legacy Video will appeal to younger family members in a way that written materials never could.
- 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 passed on 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 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!
