Stories of a Lifetime
One of the critical steps in genealogical research might not seem so obvious – to capture known relatives’ memories before they are forgotten or gone. Filmmaker Walter Schlomann shares his expertise recording family video biographies, and the rewards of documenting one’s family history. Learn tips and insights on how to research and record your own video histories, and how these stories impact the interviewee, the families, and future generations. This presentation includes excerpts of evocative biographical videos produced by Walter, which run the gamut of life’s circumstances and emotions and collectively reflect the Jewish-American experience of the last 100 years.
