Story Legacy FAQ

What Makes Story Legacy Different?

At Story Legacy, we focus on oral storytelling captured through videos. Some of our competitors require writing stories down. But writing is a solo activity and not always possible for family members who lack access to or familiarity with technology. With videos, your family stories are told by the people who lived them. We think it’s simpler and more engaging.

Another difference is our level of personal service. We’re the only family storytelling company that offers consultations with trained facilitators.

Scheduling Your Consultation and Session

After purchase, we send you an email asking you to schedule your consultation and then another email to schedule your session. All you need to do is click the “Schedule” button included in each email. Our scheduling system will automatically assign you a Family Facilitator. It’s as easy as that!

What If My Family Lives Far Away?

All our sessions are recorded virtually using Zoom video conferencing, so your family members can live anywhere in the world and participate.

Our Family Facilitators

Facilitators are trained in all things storytelling and recording to ensure your experience is as easy and fun as possible.

What Is a Session Like?

The session starts with the Family Facilitator ensuring your camera and lighting have been set up properly and answering any last-minute questions you may have. You record one story at a time, with the facilitator doing all the work. All you need to do is have fun.

Your Videos

Within an hour after your session is over, you will receive an email with separate links for each video. You can download them and store them on your computer. We keep a backup of your videos, just in case.

We do not do any editing to the videos unless you purchase the Video Editing Package.

Your Privacy

Your stories are your stories. We will never sell any of your data
