Remembering Family History

"Always tell someone how you feel, because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye, but regret can last a lifetime."
"Now as I get older I realise I have many more questions I wish I had asked my parents about their lives."
Diana (83yrs) - Bunbury W.A

We video record your family history, your stories, your life

Nothing is stranger than the truth!

What untold mysteries are hiding in your family history?

The stories of our parents and grandparents often come and go without much interest. As they were the ‘olden days’ and not relevant to our modern lives, but that’s where we are wrong. Our grandparents experienced world wars, the introduction of electricity, cars and flying. They endured hardships we can’t imagine in our pampered lives, like why they made the journey to Australia, was it to escape persecution or maybe they were sentenced to Australia…

It is only later in life that you begin to ask questions of yourself, who am I, why am I like I am? So to better understand ourselves, we must first look back at where we came from. What were the influences, social circumstance, financial demands that affected decisions. Often our search starts too late, the link to our past is broken. When a relative dies, so does their story, and that understanding of what made you has gone forever.

In contrast, for the interviewee, this can often be the first opportunity to tell their story, no one has ever asked. It can offer the power of healing family breakdown. Through discovery and understanding what has gone before, can provide an avenue for reconnection and family wellbeing, as well as documenting a ‘cracking’ story.

Don't delay, time is running out to save your history!

"We did this (recording) very late in life. Do it now so that you still have a clear memory of the past".
Stan (95yrs) - Adelaide S.A
