Create a sense of belonging and connection as you learn more about your family history and share it with future generations. A Family History Legacy film doesn't just bring your own family’s history to life, but puts world history into the context of your family’s experiences.

Wiklanski Family History

Mark Balasa had been trying for years to gather family photos and stories from his 60+ cousins all across the country. He wanted to be sure that his sons and future generations of his family know about and appreciate the struggles that their ancestors endured so they could have the comfortable lives they enjoy today. We helped him see his vision become a reality.

Memorial Legacy

A Memorial Legacy movie is about your loved ones who have passed away. Your relatives and those closest to the video biography’s subject share stories and fond memories which are edited together with home movies, photographs, and music to create a narrative of their lives and reflect how much they meant to you.

Al Ace and His Orchestra

Al Ace and his orchestra were a popular Chicagoland band in their day. Al Acierno's nephew, Mike Foltz, wanted to pay tribute to his parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents.

With careful attention to detail and inclusion of your photos, home movies and more, we make the project personal to you. If your ancestors could speak to you today, what stories would they tell? What wisdom would they share?

Tell us your stories and we’ll bring your family legacy to life.

A story is like a star; it is born in the past, illuminates the present, and will shine in the future. - J.R. Carroll
