Making Family History Videos

Let’s imagine you need to make a slide presentation for an upcoming 50th wedding anniversary celebration, or a funeral, or a genealogy society meeting. It’s easy using PowerPoint or Google Slides (free) and then narrate it using YouTube Events (free). Thank-you to my *very* distant cousin, Frälein Schmidt, for hosting this webinar while I slipped away with Mr. Myrt for a candlelight dinner. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it!
