Welcome to the May issue!
Mother’s Day is approaching. This month, how about changing things up a bit, and giving her special day a “legacy twist?” More below.
I hope you enjoy this issue of the Family Legacy Video® Producer’s e-Newsletter. Please e-mail me at email@example.com or phone toll-free (888.662.1294) with any questions or comments you have.
Cheers! – – Steve Pender
Add life stories to your Mother’s Day checklist.
A nice card? Check.
A meal at her favorite restaurant? Check.
A story session? Che- What?
Yeah, you heard me. A story session. As in, “Mom, tell me about…”
A few years ago, I interviewed my mom on video. I used the interview to create a video biography I gave to my brothers and their families as Christmas gifts. Boy, am I glad I did.
You may not be able to arrange a full-blown video session with your mom in time for Mother’s Day, but you can certainly find the time for a brief question and answer session.
Here’s what you can do:
Not only will you have a lot of fun, you’ll also have an audio legacy your family will treasure. And maybe the experience will inspire you to capture more of her life stories later on.
And don’t forget Dad – give him his turn on Father’s Day!

Should the e-Newsletter continue?
It’s hard to believe that the Family Legacy Video® Producer’s e-Newsletter began in July, 2004. That first issue, and many editions thereafter, came via e-mail. The newsletter migrated over to the Family Legacy Video® website in 2013. That’s one newsletter nearly every month for almost thirteen years. Not a bad record!
However, I’m not sure there’s much left to write about – so I thought I’d ask for your opinions. Do you find value in the newsletter? Would you like to see it continue? What kind of content interests you?
Please send your thoughts and ideas to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
