    Too busy to make it today. Perhaps next month. I haven't looked at my genealogy data all year so I may only get back into it in the fall when I hope to have some time on my hands again.

    Hi everyone,
    I'm not able to come tomorrow; I've had 3 migraines in one week including early this morning so I'll have to lay low. I'll be thinking of you all. Please share any tidbits later in the day! Thanks.

    Hi Steven,

    1. Digitize your material, save it in a significant organized manner. Make sure to use a high resolution scanner.

    Create a scenario and a story board to indicate how everything relates together.
    You will have to create timelines for the technical aspects: What goes where and when, and what gets treated first, and how. You will also need timelines for chronological sequences: how long will each part - or chapter - be...
    Editing software may be available online. (I am even told there's phone apps.)

    Who's narrating: Third person, first person?

    You will have to decide on a sound track. You may have to go and do live recordings for sound effects yourself to avoid having to pay royalties on existing ones you may find online.

    Speaking of which: keep track of every collaborator and every source where your material comes from to add in your documentary's credits.

    I hope this helps, have fun!

    Since it is unlikely I will be able to ever attend a mid-week early afternoon meeting, I'd like to ask the group a question: Does anyone have any experience converting all the images & facts they've gathered about one or people & families into a video presentation (and I do NOT mean a 'simple' review) ?

    I'd like to be able to tell the story of how a number of British children became orphans, were shipped to Canada, married, & created their own families. But I'm not a filmmaker, nor an animator - although I can see how I might be by the time I'm done :)
