Next Monday Evening Genealogy Program
Creating Family Video Documentaries
Monday, May 15, 7 p.m.
Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento
Albert Einstein Residence Center , 1935 Wright Street
Les Finke, executive director of the Albert Einstein Residence Center , has spent more than 20 years creating award-winning video histories and family documentaries through his "Video Echoes" production company. He will share with us some of his techniques assembling personal memories and reflections in videotape productions. His videos incorporate family pictures, home movies, memorabilia and music.
In most cases, he prepares the videos to celebrate individuals while they are alive. "I allow the person or family to enjoy a touch of star treatment and a chance to be famous -- if only in their living room." Les has enhanced the lives of low-income elderly in Sacramento and has also given of his time and talents to the Survivor of the Shoah Foundation.
Come enjoy Les' presentation to us on Monday evening, May 15, 7 p.m. All are welcome to attend the meeting at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento.
