What happens after you place an order?
Once you have placed an order for Your Family History on Film, Beautiful Memories will send you a DVD package containing
• a sample Family History on Film DVD
• a family tree template
• a family information sheet to write your captions/stories to accompany your photographs and images
• tips on how to choose and supply your photographs and/or images
• a sheet of ‘Where to research your Family History’ information

What you need to supply?
1. The completed family tree chart
2. The completed information form
3. Your photographs and images (choose up to 40)

What will your film include?
• your family tree chart with up to six generations, such as your grandchildren, your children, you, your parents, your grandparents and your great grandparents.
• Your 40 photographs and images each with a caption or a narration
• Music (chosen by Beautiful Memories)
• Opening title scene For example Six generations of the Smith family
• Closing credits showing family names and dates
Your film will arrive as a DVD with a printed disc showing your family name.

What you will see?
First we scan up to 40 of your supplied photographs and images – once this stage has taken place these will be returned to you by recorded delivery.

Your film opens with the title page to introduce your film.

Your film starts by focusing on a selected family member (this can be the person making the film or the eldest or youngest family member) and we use the family tree chart to show their position in the family.

This is followed by photographs of each person on the family tree (It is suggested that, if you have them, you chose between 3 or 4 photos of each family member, your best quality images and those that have some significance to your history/story).

You can also supply birth, marriage, death certificates or any other images you want to include.

Your supplied text runs alongside the images (this would be information on where your family lived, their careers, any anecdotes, nicknames etc) or you can chose to have your film narrated

There is a closing page with rolling credits to list family members and dates (this can be as far back as your research goes even if they are not within the six generations on your supplied family tree) For example
Walter and Florence Smith 1847-1901 and 1848-1933
Thomas and Susan Smith 1820-1866 and 1828 -1888
John and Elizabeth Smith 1798-1849 and so on.

Music is used to enhance the film. This is usually a classical soft piece in keeping with pace of the film.

When will you receive Your Family History on Film DVD?
Your film will be mailed to you within 4-6 weeks of receipt of your photographs and completed instructions.
