This is Your Life Legacy Videos
How often do we hear “I wish I knew more about his life story” or I wish I had asked her questions about the parts of her life I know nothing about. She would have liked that.”
It is vital to remember not just the famous people and moments in history, but the diverse individuals and their lives.
By sharing their stories, we’re not only preserving our family’s past, we are contributing to a personal (national) archive that helps us learn more about our true history.
This Is Your Life Legacy Videos offers your loved ones an opportunity to sit with a professional and insightful interviewer via Zoom, and tell their life story. A true gift for your family to keep for generations to come.
Our quality is high and we keep our rates are low. After all… this is family.
