“I had no idea!”
I’ve heard many people say that when describing their first encounter with an ancestor’s story. Until you effectively share your genealogy research, there are family members out there who also “have no idea” about their family history.
A simple lack of awareness risks losing treasured stories to dusty boxes in an attic or worse yet, the landfill. And those stories give our children a valuable sense of belonging. Lose the stories, lose the link to history.
Video Genealogy helps family historians create compelling videos that plant the seed of the family tree in the next generation. Creating a short Ancestor Story Video can grab the attention of descendants and get them excited about their personal connection to history.
Learn step-by-step how you can create a short video telling an ancestor story that gets your family’s attention and connects them to their history. The course includes 8 pre-recorded video lesson modules with action steps, weekly live online Question & Answer sessions, a Facebook group for 24/7 interaction, plus video tutorials and additional resources.
Activity centered topics include:
Module 1 – WHY Video for Genealogy? – The 3-sentence Ancestor Story Idea
Module 2 – Discovering Images for the Story – Simple Citation for Video
Module 3 – Mapping Your Journey: Creating a storyboard/script
Module 4 – Production: Gathering the Ingredients – Digitizing, Recording, Organizing
Module 5 – Editing the Audio (Setting a Mood with Music, Narration, Interviews)
Module 6 – Editing Picture: Feeling the Magic of Video Storytelling
Module 7 – Finishing touches: Titles and End Credits
Module 8 –Share Your Video: Power of Online Platforms, Social Media, Private Sites, Wrap Up – FilmFest
