Create A Free Family Family History DVD

May 6, 2010 · Filed Under Genealogy 


Last week, I got a call from a friend wondering if I knew of a way to create a family history DVD, using the collection of documents, images and photographs he had collected over the last few years.

After 5 minutes of further chatting, I then heard one of the sentences I hate the most, “oh and one more thing”. After I paused for effect, he then went on to ask “can it be done for free and is there a chance we could create a family history DVD by Mothers Day? (that’s actually two things, but what’s another favor between friends as they say)

Always up for a challenge I told him to come on over and we’ll see what we could come up with. Then it hit me, Houston we have a problem, what do I know about creating a family history DVD? About the only thing I have in common with Steven Speilberg is the same first name.

Anyway, three days later, we finally finished what we thought was a fairly decent family history DVD and amazingly it was totally free (except for all the hours I put in lol). And funny enough it was fairly easy in the end and I thought I would pass on these methods in a series of videos.

Imagine the pleasure your family might get when you turn up to your next family gathering or family reunion with your very own family history DVD.

Imagine, instead of what some might think as a long boring ramble on your family history, you could play an exciting DVD or hand them a professional looking ebook.

Imagine there’s no… (sorry got carried away a bit then)

    I'm not sure how you can consider spending 3 days of your time as being free? :) Even if you are a hobbyist, you are still donating your time which has value. I think rather than stressing the concept of a free family history, it's important to distinguish the value of such an important addition to the family archives and that one can either spend time doing it yourself for 'free' or get help doing it for a fee.
