Why Video for Genealogy?

2018-12-26 @ 8:00 pm - 9:15 pm

Margaret Eves


Event Details

Participants will learn how video engages viewers and brings family history to life. A short video about an ancestor’s story can help share genealogy research with family members who may not be “genealogically inclined.”

Topics covered include:

  • how to quickly brainstorm ancestor story ideas,
  • storyboarding a video using available images,
  • sources of public domain images to augment your story
  • putting together a finished video using free or low-cost editing tools,
  • ways to share videos with family members and encourage dialog
