Sample a Personal History Video (2:48 mins.)

If you don't document history, it WILL be forgotten.

Steve Trainor is a videographer and experienced, consumate interviewer.  Recording an interview is something you might try yourself, but Steve has interviewed for news & public affairs since 1969.  He knows the right question to ask...when...and how.  He doesn't do family tree research but helps you tell the story of your life, including all the "stories" you've told most of your life -- and even a few you haven't.  This legacy DVD, with your own pictures and underlying music, is then something your children, grandchildren, and beyond will have forever.  They'll be able to see and hear your laugh, your thoughts, your philosophies about love, work, money -- much more than mere pictures and letters left behind.  Steve makes it easy for you.  Free consultation.

“One of my biggest regrets is that I didn't get my father's life story before he died."                           -- Michelle Pfeiffer, movie star, Parade Magazine, May 5, 2012


Help your family remember you.  Recording a family member's history is an act that values their contribution, and values who they are by their family.:


"The thing about death is that you can't remember what a person sounded like.  You forget all the little things that you once knew.  The sound they made when they opened up the front door, they way they walked, the way they laughed.  All you can do is learn the lessons of those who came before you, their stories, their mistakes and their successes."  -- Anderson Cooper, CNN, October, 2014
