Want to wow your relatives with your research? Three new software programs will turn your family's memories into multimedia presentations you can share at the next reunion.
Nothing excites genealogists more than the opportunity to share research, but finding the right outlet isn't always easy. Have you ever tried to entice your relatives with pedigree charts and census records? You probably got less-than-successful results. But present Great-grandma Irene's life story in an album or slide show, and suddenly the clan's all ears.
These three software programs will help you create multimedia packages you can show at reunions, weddings and casual get-togethers. You don't have to be a technology whiz to use them. Just gather up some old photos, home movies, genealogical records and memorabilia, and you'll be spinning those family tales to a captive audience in no time.
